Southampton Village police chief rescinds internal rule governing secondary employment

What part of THE CHIEF HANDED OVER ALL OF THE REQUIRED INFORMATION is not being comprehended here?

Last I checked police officers do not only deal with traffic violations. Sometimes they have to arrest people who commit terrible crimes. Should those people have the right to know where to find the officers on their off time? Should they be given information which could potentially put the officers, their families or secondary employer in danger?

This information should have never been released to anyone! Releasing that information does not demonstrate Transparency in Government, it just opens up Hunting Season for anyone with an axe to grind.

Southampton Village mayor and police chief at odds over officers' secondary employment applications

Deal with what exactly? WORKING a SECOND JOB is NOT ILLEGAL! There is NOTHING that Wilson or the Village Board can do about it! Get Over it and STOP your crying!!" Mar 19, 10 10:22 AM

What proof is there that anyone is doing anything wrong at all? There is a potential for conflict for just about everyone who has more then 1 job. If there is proof that someone is doing something wrong then why has it not been brought up until today?
There is no conflict here, no scandal. The only conflicts and scandals going on here are the ones made up by the Press and the 12 people that comment on all of their stories. This is America and if someone has the will and the ability to make hundreds of thousands of dollars (college degree or not) then GOOD FOR THEM!" Mar 19, 10 5:50 PM

Southampton Town supervisor floats cop consolidation plan

Well it’s about time! Taxpayers can no longer afford the little ‘kingdoms’ that have been created on the east end. Consolidate and combine to provide more streamlined and effective services. Police/Schools/Village and Town services should be offered by one entity. Efficiency and cost effectiveness should be the rule of the day!!!!! " Aug 4, 10 4:52 PM

Southampton Town Board Fails To Appoint New Police Chief

Stop with your political rhetoric! When was the last time you heard of a department head awarding an employment benefit or raise? NEVER!!! Politicians, lawyers and unions negotiate contracts, NOT CHIEFS!! You don’t like what the cops get paid then take it up with the politicians who awarded the raises. By all accounts Tenaglia has been a tough boss, and Wilson has apparently been no picnic for the unions either because the Press has reported at least five department members have gotten the boot from him. So the Board appoints who THEY want (not the unions or other political party picks) ultimately their choice will be monitored by the public who elects them, and therein lies the responsibility. We are ALL watching. " Apr 16, 11 4:16 PM
