Police Department is in for a rude awaking with this one. I wouldn't be surprised if they try to get this story pulled before its released.

Well the chief of Police has a history of not knowing the Township's policy, and if he does, he ignores them and does what he wants to do. One of the reasons the Police dept lost it's accreditation and will cost the township more money in insurance.

The Township will try to delay the public knowing what they did when they hired this guy. How is it that a blogger exposes a private detective. He can't be that good to be found out. Don't let them pressure this website in not releasing what happened. Stick to your guns Lisa.

Here the long and short of it. Twp hires a PI, ex-galloway cop to do investigation. Isn't the Manager an ex-cop and ex-chief? Why is the Twp hiring a cop as a managers (cop) assistant. Arch has more up his sleeve then the Press is eluding to. I hope this website has the goods on what good ole Arch is hiding.
