The city of Cape May wants the county prosecutor to end what it believes has been a takeover of its police department.
The Press of Atlantic City reports that city attorney Todd Gelfand told Judge J. Christopher Gibson a county prosecutor has designated a person to monitor the city’s police department.
Gelfand says the move amounts to a “hostile takeover.” Prosecutor Robert Taylor says the monitor was there to ensure the integrity of a county investigation into compensatory time taken by an officer.
Gelfand argues the liaison is complicating lines of communication.
Gibson did not rule on the issue but said he would soon.
