A TFoTM source states that disgraced ex-Westfield police chief David Wayman has applied to become Sea Bright’s next police chief. Wayman abruptly resigned from the WPD on August 1, 2018 during a Union County Prosecutor’s Office investigation into alleged corruption and misconduct including a hit and run accident and coverup allegedly involving Wayman.
Westfield police Lieutenant Leonard Lugo, the author of the hit and run accident, was demoted back to patrol sergeant in the wake of the investigation.
Sea Bright’s police department includes 5 patrolmen, 1 detective, 1 corporal, 2 sergeants, 1 lieutenant, and 1 captain. Sea Bright is looking to fill the position of police chief to replace the retired John Sorrentino.
TFoTM can confirm that that Sea Bright is moving in a different direction and will not be hiring discraced ex-Westfield Police Chief David Wayman as their police chief.
