  1. Just another corrupt police chief to fall on his own sword. Good riddance and don't let the door hit you in the arse on the way out as you take the walk of shame these next few weeks.

  2. The sharks smell blood in the water. It will be interesting to see who from team Parizeau jumps ship ans starts to align themselves with who they think will be the next chief. Word to the wise, don't put all your eggs in one basket gentlemen.

  3. Now it all makes sense why the mayor is trying to shine up Wayman. Big mistake Andy.

  4. With the pending retirement of Chief Parizeau, it would behoove the individuals making up the Command Staff of the department to seek the Certified-Eligible Law Enforcement Executive (C-ELEE) Certificate issued by the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police if they do not already posses it. By having this certification, it makes it difficult for the Governing Body to choose any one individual without it. This program offered by the association sets the standards for professionalism in the area of Chief Law Enforcement Officers. (HMMMMM)

    Does this mean Cliff will pull his papers????? Is Parizeau running out the back door in the middle of the night or will the town give him the red carpet out the door to his free car????

  6. Will Gildea try to make Wayman Chief because he has a personal vendetta against Auchter? Maybe this is the year a lower ranking supervisor gets the nod to be chief. Prediction: They open up the testing to Lt's again to make it look fair. Wayman dines with Skibitsky and Gildea and the decision is made way before the process is over to make Wayman but they get caught in a scandal because Wayman's past and all his dirty laundry surfaces.

  10. Not very long ago the department and town was crying that they had no money to promote anyone to detective, let alone sgt. A test was held and two guys, Joe Costanzo and John Tango finished one and two after being told what school to go to to prep for the test. Costanzo, Captain Wayman's best friend got made sgt. when there was no need for one since John Ricerca had been running the detective bureau as a sgt until he sued the town to make Lt. Now, with Parizeau's announcement that he is leaving, he made Tango a sgt. when there is no need for one. This promotion should be questioned. John Tango was hired along with his cousin Nicole Tango (who is also a plainclothes detective) by the last chief Barney Tracy. Tracy met with then Linden Schools Superintendent Joe Martino and John Tango's father (a Linden Bd. of Education employee)and brokered a deal to hire the superintendent's son (Joe Martino Jr.), and the two Tangos and the Superintendent promised Tracy a job when he retired. The promotion of John Tango at a time when there is no need for one is questionable. This promotion should be rescinded so that the new chief can mold the department as he see's fit. Politics as usual.

  11. I have heard this Ricera is involved with the Prosecutor Romankow - Chief Parizeu scandal and is on several of the audio tapes - calls.

    Bets are the U.S. Attorney has to step in not unlike Camden County a few years back.

  12. Terrorist Arrested in Westfield on December 28, 2011 as reported in the Westfield Patch and County Watchers.

    It is my understanding the Chief of Police in Westfield was thrown under the bus and has resigned under threats from Romankow for the arrest of a Executor-Trustee however, it was Romankow that ordered the arrest of this Executor and Trustee of a substantial estate with assets in NJ – Maine & Bermuda. It is also been discovered one of the son’s – who is a beneficiary of the estate is a Confidential Informant for the Union County Prosecutor – Romankow and this Chief. Apparently the Executor filed criminal charges against the son for theft, extortion, fraud, forgery and a host of other charges in Westfield and the Westfield Police were ordered to “sit on it”. This prosecutor Romankow had something cooking and it ended up biting him in the ass. The situation was referred to the Inspector General of the Treasury and Veterans Affairs Administration due to the Social Security and VA benefits Fraud committed by the son under the protection of this Prosecutor Romankow and this Chief. I imagine several law enforcement personnel get prosecuted as an accessory to the crimes (son) as well as the other State – Federal violations.

    The Westfield Patch is a bit off on this as the Executor – Trustee is a resident of New York (NYC) not Westfield is apparently a dual citizen and I have been told a U.N. Envoy based in New York and Geneva Switzerland.

    This is going to be interesting as I understand all the cell phone records of the Westfield Police and Union County Prosecuter have been or will be seized. The Chief was apparently using his girlfriend's cell phone quite a bit.

  13. WOW ! it's like they say "Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction"

    This explains why there are two women (likely Fed's) asking questions and interviewing current and former Police Officers from Westfield and former Investigator's of the Union County Prosecutor's office. I know a Detective in the adjoining town who is a former UCPO Investigator and he says it will be "dirty - very dirty" as one of his Officer's was asked to sign a Report contradicting or disputing a criminal complaint made by a resident against an off duty Fanwood Police Officer for an incident in his town that was cooked up by the Chief's of Fanwood and Scotch Plains with the assistance of Chief Parizeau. The Officer refused and was threatened with retaliation The Detective stood by his Officer as he should.

  14. It is interesting to see how the Cops (their names shall remain super secret:) on this forum have gone dark with respect to the issues of the WPD and the UCPO.

    One old timer who was on the Knapp Commission in New York says "this will be interesting as there is trouble here in River City".

  15. I think all of this stuff with the Chief and the Prosecutor will get down to "What did you know and when did you know it".

    I find it hard to believe that the State of NJ Attorney General has let this rouge prosecutor run wild as he has been described as "Mike Nilfong Light" by several attorney's and Judges as in the infamous Duke Lacrosse Prosecutor. There was another Prosecutor like this in Somerset County years back and they ended up finally prosecuting him and then he shamed his family by cutting the ankle bracelet monitor and taking that trip to Vegas never to return as he took his own life. I am not so sure that this Parizeau is not himself a victim of this Prosecutor. My Mom told me this Prosecutor Romankow used to drive a Corvette with vanity plates SUE YOU and used to harass and hit on women as he thought he was as she said "Corbin from L.A. Law"

  16. At this point as quoted by a current sitting Superior Court Judge "it's now a matter for the Inspector General and Special Prosecutor - it's not who is being monitored phone/email) it's who is not".
