  3. Just a thought.......how much is all this costing the taxpaying public of Westfield to hold hearings, do investigations, take a cop off the street, and hire a hearing officer, I am sure he doesnt come out of the goodness of his heart......and if Bob is cleared who pays for his lawyer

    1. The cost can run in the thousands of dollars to pay for the hearing officer, town attorney prosecuting the officer, and salary while the officer is on modified duty pending the disposition. Police officers can pay an insurance premium, less than $200 a year for up to $50,000 in legal protection should disciplinary or criminal charges arise during employment. Reimbursement of attorney fees, should the officer be found not guilty, can be pursued by the officer.

  4. Ghost of Westfield PastThursday, August 29, 2013

    not that Wayman has ever gone after others....he is known for his temper and bully attitude towards others who would dare question him.....I know of at least two others who have walked with bulls eyes on their backs...... I guess old Dave is just a product of his evil environment afterall look who is mentor is Barney.....and we all know how Barney targeted the people who questioned him....they either left for greener pastures (Elvin, Garley) or took early retirement (Kasko, Fuentes)...it is a shame when ego and personal agendas supersede hard work.....if karma holds true it wont be long before Dave falls on his sword and has to sneak out the back door in the middle of the night just like his hero Barney

  5. Beaton should legally change his name to Tango and all will be forgotten. Only in the WPD can you get arrested by the NJSP, start fights at softball games, drive intoxicated an be rewarded with Sergeant stripes, but you have to be a Tango.

  6. wow...sounds like someone I know........starting fights at softball games, assaulting home owners and fleeing the scene only to caught later on by the locals....then having a fund raiser to pay for legal expenses organized by his disciples....drive drunk wreck a town own vehicle and because the chief of police of the city he crashed in has two brothers working at WPD the payback was stripes and bars.....nice work if you can get it.

  9. When will the disgruntled Westfield cops who post their gossip, school kid gripes and pettiness leave their cushy jobs here and go work for another town?

    1. Never. Despite the favoritism, politics and outright protection by Wayman of his criminal subordinate suck azzes, I'll stay here and wait for them to jackpot themselves but that won't happen as long as Wayman is in charge because he will cover for his boys and her. Battiloro for chief!

  12. Does anyone know if there is a street sweeping schedule that is being followed? I had my street cleaned a few weeks ago for the first time this year but there were cars parked on the street and sections were missed. I notice that Clark Street, South Side Train Station and Lord and Taylor areas are sweep on an almost daily basis.
