CAMDEN, NJ – A new report has been released by the state of New Jersey and several Camden cops are on it.
After months of back and forth, former New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal’s “ Major Discipline Reporting Report ” report for 2020 has finally been released.
The New Jersey Attorney General’s Major Discipline Reporting Report, also known as the “bad cop” report has been released. The release of the report was criticized from its inception.
Two Burlington County cops were identified in the state’s new major discipline report. The new “bad cop” report released by the State of New Jersey was criticized from its inception, but a new report has been released by the State of New Jersey identifying “bad cops”.
AG Directive 2021-6 required all New Jersey law enforcement agencies to submit to the Attorney General their first “Major Discipline Reporting Report,” which covered discipline imposed between June 15, 2020, and December 31, 2020. “Major discipline” is defined as terminations, reductions in rank, or suspension of more than five days. Below is a listing of the reported major discipline for the second half of 2020. In the future, law enforcement agencies will report major discipline on January 31 for the preceding calendar year.
The 92-page report details about one hundred police officers who faced internal disciplinary measures for violations of the law or department ethics and policy guidelines. Many fear the report will be used as a tool to launch attacks against police officers and the profession. The report contains incidents between June 15, 2020, and December 31, 2020.
The report, released by the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office that was the brainchild of former Attorney General Gurbir Grewal was controversial from the start.
