The Westfield police department honored its members at an awards ceremony that usually takes place each year.
Last night’s awards ceremony was the first since 2013 and the first since disgraced Westfield police chief David Wayman was forced to resign after a Union County Prosecutor’s office investigation into his hit & run accident. The accident coverup was exposed by TFoTM.
Wayman’s neglect in acknowledging the rank and file, and their accomplishments, comes as no surprise to those that have worked with him over the years.
Under the department’s new leadership, “Acting” police chief Chris Battiloro has given members of the WPD a reason to look forward to a positive future.
An officer that wishes to remain anonymous stated, “Eveyone is smiling and upbeat around here ever since Wayman left.”
TFoTM congratulates the WPD award winners on a job well done!
