Police chief

Recommended Posts

Guest Guest

The chief is retiring there are four lieutenants testing for the job. McGee Markowski, Strumio and McAlinden.

Who are these guys? Anybody know them? Are any of them good for the job?

The only one that might be qualified is McAlinden. The rest are either a conceited troublemaker, a sick time abuser or a poorly educated fellow. You can decide which one fits each description. It should be an easy call. Either way, all are currently neglecting their present obligations by studying while on duty instead of protecting and serving the residents. The best call for the taxpayers would be to eliminate the position of Police Chief and hire one Public Safety Director in charge of both Police & Fire.

McGee. I know him personally, he's dedicated to the town and I think he's a perfect fit for the job...

I know Dean McGee. He’s a great cop, always willing to help. I think he’d be a great chief

List came out last week

1 Strumolo 

2 McAlinden

3 Markowski 

4 McGee

The Chief has decided to name #3 “acting chief” until his March 1 retirement date and is pushing hard to get him made permanently.  Like the earlier post mentioned, Markowski was promised the job.  Such a disgrace to ignore the process  !

The test is out and the “sure” bet got crushed by number one. Who exactly is this sure bet guy?? Besides number 3??? What has he done for the residents? Dept?? Never did much *** **** about the residents as if they were  ****** . Stated on numerous occasions , he was there for *** *****. Not even when he ***** a local ******** ***** did he  participate in Town functions.His claim to fame was pba prez to get certain dept loads *** *** **** on their ***** ******, ***.... the current  administrator . That rule of 3 is a ploy to avoid the facts. Residents need to know and Town and council do right by the test. Test facts show who the real chief is. Now Implement truth , justice, facts, break that  nepotism cycle !!!

Test results are out.  Congratulations to Lt Dave Strumolo who not only came out first in the Civil Service Commission test he blew away his competition.   Guess we always knew who the right person for the job was.   Test just confirms it.

the Chief can't appoint an acting chief. It has to be done by the Mayor and Council

Could someone explain this to me.  Police Commissioner not enamored with current chief and the way he ran PD   Why would he then hire the closest confidant and collaborator that this current chief has.   Does he want more of the same.  Get why the chief is supporting him.  Don’t quite understand why the town would be.   Does he know somebody that knows somebody.       I don’t get it.

Dear Confused,  You're not smart enough to understand. That's why you're posting nonsense.

People need to start calling the mayor and council asking why they are appointing an individual who came out 3rd and not 1st. Such a disgrace to the residents and police department. Why be a civil service department if your gonna go ahead and promote anyone you want.

The Chief and Council just did a disservice to the men and woman of the Harrison Police Department today by making 3RD place the Acting Chief.   I guess the testing process is good for nothing!  Hope #1 files a lawsuit and crushes the town!   MORALE is gone people!!!!!!

Guest Mr Verde

Here come the lawsuits.  Rightfully so!  Same thing happened in Nutley a few years ago.  The town lost and they had to make the plaintiff the new chief!

Why would they skip over 2 people to get to someone who is the chief’s handpicked successor?  A chief, by the way, who was not even liked by the town council.  

And, why was the chief so indebted to #3? Did he save his life or something?

Is the Harrison town council going to make the right decision and promote the number one candidate? If not there will be a heavy law suit against the town and guess who has to pay for that? The poor residents of Harrison. We already pay enough in property tax we don’t need another raise. Jimmy if your reading this do the right thing, don’t let your residents down. If number three is chosen I will make it my job to make sure nobody in town votes for these corrupt fools in upcoming elections.

Only in Harrison PD would the chief make the #3 guy as opposed to the #1 candidate.   Imagine if we watched the Olympics and routed for a bronze medalist.   Why bother watching the Super Bowl #3 already played.    I wonder if he needed a doctor god forbid for something.  Would he pick the number #1 dr (best one) or would he pick #3 because he is indebted to him.   Guess we will never know.   If he needed a mechanic. A school.    You will hear that it’s not all about the test.  But Civil Service towns are all about the test.  Test is given by current and former chiefs, state workers that this is their only job and a tried and true method. Civil service towns select their candidates for promotion based on these experts.   Why doesn’t Harrison?

   That's why the state has the "rule of 3".  Obama might have come out #1.  Get it ??

Guest Pissed off resident

Why would the town want a chief who assisted a female town worker sue the town, after allegations of official misconduct? Maybe he has dirt on Jimmy and friends? I can’t wait for the lawsuit!! You won’t just have one lawsuit you will have two. One from number one and one from number two. Oh and after the lawsuit is settled you will have to pay number ones salary in back pay. Don’t be stupid Jimmy make the right decision.

Guest Be real.

Stop threatening law suits, cause you have no idea what #1 or #2 is going to do, it’s silly and undermines what is really happening.   The reality is #1 clearly should be the choice for Chief,  he is a family man,  with 4 kids,  married to his HS Latina sweetheart.   Which helps him understand what this growing Hispanic community needs.  He knows the law and Civil Service determined Lt Strumolo to the best candidate for the job.  All you really need to know about #3 (police Commissioner’s choice) is that his close friends in the department and contemporaries have come out and supported #1.  That could be that they believe in the Civil Service Testing process or maybe they just know him best.  I will let them answer that on their own.  To the Town council, we have heard over and over again that it’s not a one man show, that you have a vote. Well please use it.   I know you are not involved in the day to day operations of any of the departments.  But ask.  Be informed.  Lt Strumolo is exactly what you see.  He will do what’s in the best interest of the police department, town and it’s residents.  #3 his goal is to become chief.  (That’s it)

Guest Sick & Tired

On the next episode of “The Chief”, which candidates will be offered a rose and asked to return for next week’s show.  This whole thing is playing out like a reality TV show.  Pretty sad if you ask me!

Guest Guest come on Jimmy...

What is the point of even making the officers take the test in the first place if they are just going to make #3? clearly the decision had been made before test came out. Chiefs test is made to test for qualities needed in a good chief, obvious choice would be to take the #1 candidate but this council needs to step up and do the right thing
