F--ked up police training... Star-Ldger article.

Dec. 7 Ledger front paged an article about a police training course, provided by a private corporation and paid for by taxpayers. During the course, police were taught improper and unconstitutional techniques of police procedure.

Instruction included profanity and inappropriate language that was sexist, vulgar and racist.. One presenter's teaching aid was a photo of a monkey in a shirt that he projected while describing the stop of a 70 year old black man in Trenton.

So ---  were any SoMa officers in attendance at this course? IF so, when they returned to duty, did they use their classroom curriculum to tell new jokes to other officers in the locker room? Or did they instead, report objections about the course to supervisors so as to prevent tax money to be used to attend future courses?  Or to correct misinformation that was presented at the course?

 What concern do our two chiefs have about this?

Inquiring minds want to know.

you should contact them and ask.  They are good questions, but how can anyone here answer them?

ABC News posted a list yesterday of the police departments in attendance. Neither Maplewood nor South Orange was on that list.

Here's the list of attendees that OSC has confirmed.

I think the local departments should still be asked if they have attended training put on by Street Cop or any other private training orgs. OSC has just looked at one incident, back in 2021. I'm sure there are more. Police training in this country has been a problem for many years, but it is rarely examined.

And here's a choice nugget:

None of the New Jersey police who attended complained about the training to their agencies, OSC found.




Front page article in NYTimes yesterday about this.

I agree with Drummerboy. This probably is not the only time the training company did this. 

Plus there are plenty of nearby departments that did participate in this one incident. That includes Newark, Morris Township, and Florham Park. The state police also attended.
