Statement from Mayor Zimmer on Receiving the Operational Audit of the Hoboken Police Department
On Friday at 5:00 PM, I received the long awaited Operation Audit of the Hoboken Police Department from Division of Local Government Services Director Susan Jacobucci.
I’d like to thank the Division of Local Government Services for all the hard work that went into producing this report. I’d also like to thank Lori Grifa, the new Commissioner of the State Department of Community Affairs, for giving this matter her personal attention to ensure this long awaited report is finally available to Hoboken’s government officials and to the public.
I look forward to working with the public safety committee of the City Council, Public Safety Director Angel Alicea, Police Chief Anthony Falco and the DLGS to determine the best course of action to implement the recommendations contained within the report.
Talking Ed Note: In a brief conversation with Dan Bryan, Special Assistant to the Mayor, MSV inquired on the original plan to give Police Chief Falco and Public Safety Director Angel Alicea a week to review the document before its release. The change came about due to an OPRA request. As a result, the mayor's office decided to go ahead with a full rather than partial release.
