New Jersey police chief faces drug charges

It is an accepted fact that no person is capable of perfection. However, people who work in certain professions in New Jersey and across the country are often held to a higher standard. For example, if police officers are suspected of a crime, they often face significant public scrutiny. In fact, in a climate where police are continually under fire, officials may be quick to make an arrest should a suspicion of criminal activity arise, regardless of evidence. Unfortunately, a police chief now faces drug charges.

The 43-year-old man was originally suspended from his position in July. The suspension came after a prosecutor's report indicated that violations of state law and police guidelines may have occurred in the department. His recent arrest, however, was allegedly connected to an attempt to purchase cocaine.

Reports claim that the man bought the cocaine online and arranged to pick it up at a post office box. However, detectives allegedly put a fake substance in the post office box. The man was arrested when he reportedly picked up the decoy.

Many details surrounding the case are unclear, including what led detectives to plant a fake package of cocaine. Unfortunately, many people in New Jersey may not feel confident with their decision making abilities regarding drug charges and other crimes, even those who have worked as a law enforcement officer. Often, it is difficult for people to objectively view their case, preventing them from making informed decisions. Fortunately, there are legal professionals who can help. With such help, defendants often feel more capable of choosing which path to take when it comes to responding to such accusations.
