CARTERET – Board of Education candidate Jimmy Hart attempted to secure reimbursement from the Carteret Police Department for overtime hours that he never actually worked, according to documents obtained by NJTODAY.NET.
In one of dozens of grievances obtained by this newspaper that Hart filed with the department, he claimed he deserved to be reimbursed for overtime hours that he admitted to not working.
Hart alleged that Carteret Police Department Capt. Dennis McFadden violated contract rules by skipping him on the overtime call list for a four-hour overtime shift on Dec. 20, 2009. Hart sought to be paid for the four hours, even though he was not called to work.
He also demanded that the department call police officers on the overtime list, regardless of whether they were on holiday or vacation.
Hart earns over $106,000 a year in tax dollars, before benefits, in his current position.
