Another bad egg that makes the rest of us look bad

And you wonder why everyone hates us. Cover up from moment one. Wonder how many heads will roll on this one.

What a mess. I can see using the fake ID if he was actively UC and needed to protect his cover. The brass can then quietly go to the other party and their insurance company and write a check (if at fault, sounds like he was).

Since he was OD it has to be his real name.

I don't think they could have handled this more poorly than they did.

On second thought, one of the investigators could have banged Tanksley's girlfriend/wife while he was in the hospital and gotten her pregnant. That would make this Cluster F##k even worse.

The first tip-off that something wasn't right was that they probably never ran the name of the driver who hit the other vehicle for a warant, criminal history check over the radio.



Anyone listening to the radio, who wasn't actually sent to the scene should have already been wondering why a rap-warrant check wasn't being done.

Hilarious!

Looks like another department has some serious PR problems.

Police officers should be held to a higher example (and more severe penalties, when wrong-doing occurs) than the general public.

I agree.

They hold members of the military to a higher standard, so should police officers.

I think most police officers would agree to that as well.

I don't think NJSP are allowed to own personal Class III weapons.

I agree also. But let's show them the money too.

Not a good move. But, I will wait until the whole thing washes out. Maybe we will see the results later.

Most likely one or two heads might roll but it would surprise me if anything gets done about this. In NJ the NJSP walk on water in their own minds. Nuf said

Yeah the NJSP are legends in their own minds.

This is the first I have heard of this incident. And I don't know this guy Billingham.

I can't comment on NJSP policy regarding undecover officers and vehicles having been involved in motor vehicle accidents. Though some here may have an idea on how these incidents are handled. What I can tell you, is that if our internal affairs bureau is handling this, there will be disciplinary action if there was wrongdoing.

And don't think for a minute the NJSP top brass knew of some kind of "coverup" and did nothing about it. The idea that these guys would throw their careers and pensions away over some intoxicated sergeant having been involved in a motor vehicle accident makes no sense at all.

This reminds me of an incident I had with about 1 year as a LEO. There I was, sitting around for that next OC gun call when some irate person bangs on my window and says another car backed up into his car. We get there and sure enough, a silver car did back up into this person's car. The driver of the silver car came out, admitted it was his mistake, etc....

The passenger of the silver car also came out and pulled me aside. IDed himself as a supervisor and said the car was fictitious, the driver's DL was fictitious, and they were there doing whatever.

The supervisor also understood I had to do an accident report or the other guy would get really, really suspicious. Let's just say I took this opportunity to hit the fictitious driver with so many tickets that later, (according to my Lieutenant) when the supervisor came to the police station to pick up the accident report, his jaw dropped.

When my Lieutenant next saw me, he just laughed.

And no, I never went to court for those tickets.
