Westfield Police Promotional Exam Results

The Westfield Police Department's promotional exam results are in and there are no surprises. TFoTM will follow up with further details

  1. Is Ricerca planning a pasta feast at the house with Skibitsky and his councilmen? He will do anything for that second bar including selling out his PBA by taking a back door raise.

    1. Members of the Westfield Police Department know John Ricerca obtained the pay of Lieutenant long before he was promoted to the rank through "back room" politics, It's not the first time that someone, who didn't score high enough on the promotional exam to initially be promoted, got promoted ahead of others more deserving. In non-civil service towns, such as Westfield, the shenanigans that took place between the time Ricerca went from patrolman to Lieutenant in a short period of time, occur all too often and deplete an otherwise respectable department of its morale.

    2. John Ricerca said, "I'll do anything to get promoted." That says it all.

    3. Sort of like an episode of Happy Days. Chachi tells his girl Joanie to do whatever Chachi's boss wants her to do so he can go from a nobody to somebody. The show spun off into another sitcom called "Joanie Loves Chachi" but everyone knew it was fake.

  5. It's no wonder why cops are leaving WPD for other departments and in some cases taking a pay cut. The place is a cesspool.

  6. The place is a revolving door just like under Moran's control.

  7. The more things that change, the more they stay the same. Expect more quality officers to take a pay cut and leave rather than sell their souls to the Devil.

    I know how....since Zod was allowed to submit questions for the exam......common sense says that his personal secretary (Tango-Stivale) typed them up and kept a copy....prior to submitting them.....

      Maybe you didn't hear about the new Sergeant position. Nicole Stivale is being promoted to sergeant of secretaries. Ironic that when abbreviated, the acronym is S.O.S. Stivale.

  12. Poor O'Keefe he and all the others on the list must be on suicide watch knowing that Stivale came out number 2......is for one cant believe it......had the pleasure (cough cough) to see her in action......the only one worse was Martino and see what happened to him

  15. What do think the chances are of Tango-Stivale getting stripes becoming junior SGT and working midnight shifts......more then likely she will either take over Robin's job or become Zod's driver.......

  16. Just read this article on the town of Westfield's web site .....http://www.westfieldnj.gov/index.asp?SEC=13228820-E28B-4F2D-930C-7A287359CAB1&DE=12695B1D-ACEB-432B-B261-9A30D80B02D4&Type=B_BASIC
    as I read it, thought to myself who better to know about scams......Dave has scammed his way through the ranks and his whole career.....from getting banned from the police academy as an instructor for his treatment of recruits to cheating his way through promotional exams......what a shame the town is blinded or ignorant afterall the town was clued into Dave's way.....it is truly a shame that he got to where he is when there is such great talent wasting away there just counting the days till they can say "Free at last! Free at last!

    Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!" (MLK JR)

    2. During a visit to Mayor Skibitsky's office in 2009 and 2010, Skibitsky was warned of the ramifications if the town did not change the way it selects it's next chief. The warnings fell on deaf ears. Mayor Skibitsky laughed and denied that there was a morale issue within the department. He wrote it off as "a few disgruntled employees." I wonder what he is thinking now? The seed was planted when Jim Gildea was named "acting town administrator." Since then, the administrative appointments by an inept Gildea has caused the police department to spiral into the reaches of discontent not seen since the days of the Chief Moran era. Current Police Chief.....or I should say "thief," Wayman will ultimately fall victim to his own corruption just as his mentor Barney Tracy did. That will be a fact.
      In due time.

  18. Hey just a follow up has Zod promoted any of his coven yet?????? its been awhile or is he waiting for the 31st??????

    ReplyDelete
  19. its been almost two months since the promotional exam at WPD and no promotions made as of yet.....what is the administration waiting for, the list to expire so they can throw another test at the taxpayers expense????? does the PD get a kick back from the testing firm...????....come on do it already......people studied hard, laid out hard earned money for classes and kissed a lot of butt to get where they are reward them....

    ReplyDelete
  20. Perhaps the administration is having a hard time justifying Promoting Nicole Tango-Stivale. She finished second on the sergeants promotional exam. How can they justify promoting "a secretary" to the rank of sergeant, when she served approximately 18 months in patrol and the remainder of her career, the last nine years, as a secretary.

    Maybe candidates for sergeant back door'd the union and got a secret raise to act in the capacity of a higher rank without the actual stripes like John Ricerca did.

  22. What's the holdup, make McErlean a Lieutenant already. He'll be the first lieutenant to ever work out of the traffic bureau knowing they can't possibly put him back in patrol.

    Hey Stupid,
    When you going to make the promotions from the recent exam, afterall the tax paying public paid to administer that test, the rank and file studied hard for it, are you waiting for the ceiling to tell you who to promote????? amazing the town would promote someone like yourself through the ranks.

  30. Norton was a great sergeant but ran scared as a lieutenant looking to intimidate his way into being a captain. Things didn't turn out his way and now and his buddy Piano are just..................forgotten

    1. Just like everyone else that leaves there, including you. Take a good look at your department. Look at your bosses. Who intimidates whom? Being a RAT is how you make captain. You should know. That's something he never did. You should know that, too....Anonymous

    2. Norton should've invited the mayor over for a past feast like Ricerca did and maybe he would've made the rank of captain. Let this be a lesson for you all, Cassidy, Maguire, Moffit and Padovano.

  31. The new captain is the meatball king! The Mayor and Wayman love the meatballs Ricerca's wife serves up.
    The same chop meat he uses to make RAT burgers.
