ELIZABETH – Six city police officers could face criminal charges and up to 30 may have had no-show jobs with the city’s Housing Authority, according to a News 12 New Jersey report.
The officers under investigation were assigned to work extra duty assignments at four Elizabeth senior housing complexes, but were allegedly paid for hours that they didn’t work, the report said.
Six of the accused officers – five detectives and one sergeant – are from the narcotics division. Some allegedly paid confidential informants to sign them on and off duty, according to the report.
