Report: NJ Cops Paid Not To Sue Town

GALLOWAY, N.J. (AP) — Documents show two police officers in southern New Jersey received payments not to sue after they were passed over for the chief’s job last year.

The Press of Atlantic City reports that the captains each received nearly $30,000 in deals that were not approved by the Galloway Township council as required by law.

Some members of the township council also say that they did not know about the deals.

Police Capts. Joseph Davies and William Hambrecht both received similar deals when they retired over the last two years after being passed over for the chief’s job.
