I don't understand. Isn't that 3 separate incidents with the vernon pd in 1 year?
Why is vernon having such a discipline problem?
Who is responsible for keeping the men in line?
The chief of police?

If officer is charge with anything that would put him or her in category of on fit to be officer then definitely "NO" they should not be permitted to carry weapon period!
And if charges against them happen to be as assault then they should not be permitted to own weapon.

WOW... I moved from jersey city for a better place for my family. This is bull shit! from top office to school teacher. We need outsiders to come in and clean house? Vernon is to much of a beautiful place to let trash like these people mess it up... Good people of this town. Wake up! LETS TAKE THE TRASH OUT!
This town is starting to stink!

The entire system in Vernon is broken. Police salaries out of whack with their job aspects...council people coming and going legitimately or managers acting un-ethical or otherwise spent around the town, on things that aren't even necessary...mayors and council members implicated in ugly stuff. Imagine the amount of reduction in our taxes, if all of the fraud, waste, & abuse were eliminated, and truly honest people ran Vernon, including the police.
