Southampton Supervisor Calls For Investigation Of Police Department

ATH - If you are going to be a cat, be a lion not a pussycat.

Southampton Town Police Logged Long Hours Following Sandy

fuou812 - imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

"More than half of the overtime hours logged by supervisors was racked up by the department’s commanding officer at the time, Captain Robert Pearce, who is now the department’s chief, and by Lieutenant Lawrence Schurek, who was the town’s emergency operations coordinator and liaison to the Suffolk County Office of Emergency Management. The two worked 214 hours of overtime in just over two weeks, in addition to their usual 40-hour work weeks during that period. "

Yes, we can thank Wilson & the Town Board for this. The hen house has been handed to the fox and they are apparently fleecing it... should we really be surprised? It appears that padding their pockets is common practice - criminals disguised as cops.

"The documents also included three felony charges and a misdemeanor charge prepared by former Chief William Wilson Jr. in 2012 against a police lieutenant, James Kiernan, for allegedly changing time sheets indicating days worked."

"The administration has been so unchecked for so many years," he said Wednesday, after town police found evidence that had been reported as missing. "The feeling is that they can do whatever they want and don't have to answer to anybody." - 'Source: U.S. attorney probing Southampton police' - 3/28/13 rhymes with Tuesday

"The lax controls on the accrual system apparently led to the town overpaying five retiring officers more than $44,000 in compensation for unused accrued time off last year."
&
"In another instance, the auditors found that the department’s activity log had no activity entries for an officer on two separate days that he was shown as being on duty."- 'Troubling’ Practices Subject Of D.A.’s Probe' 11/29/12

"Due to a clerical error, Lt. Schurek was initially paid for an additional 27 hours of overtime after a clerk entered 30 hours of overtime for a period when he in fact only worked three hours overtime. According to Town Comptroller Len Marchese, the error was reported to his office by the police department three days after the incorrect paycheck was issued, on November 30, and Lt. Schurek’s pay was adjusted in the next pay period to account for the overpayment, which totaled about $3,400."

Lt Schurek did not notice an extra $3,400? Where is the integrity?! Why did I even ask... isn't that the problem with this administration?

"Kiernan, who was suspended between May and November, pleaded guilty in October to administrative charges of "incompetency or inefficiency" and "conduct which brings discredit upon the department" in a plea agreement with the town, according to the documents.
He admitted to four of 32 charges he had been facing, including failing to immediately report a prescription drug-addicted officer who was on the drug unit, and giving a false statement to internal affairs investigators, according to a Southampton administrative settlement agreement.
Kiernan lost 73 days of sick, vacation and personal time. He is back on the job as a lieutenant supervising the town's patrol officers." - 'Review: Addicted cop was allowed to work' 3/12/13 Rhymes with Tuesday

“As to what we needed to do to address whatever issues there were that have led to this, I’ve got three words for you: Chief Robert Pearce,” Mr. Malone said

LMFAO - that one still gets me every time!" May 11, 13 7:55 AM

"We should be thanking Pearce for stepping up to the plate" Yes, he stepped up like a pig at the trough. Thank god Lt Kiernan was not reinstated.... one can only imagine how much overtime he would have bilked the town for seeing that he apparently has a history of stealing from the town.

I did not say WIlson is to blame for "all of this" only his part in handing the police administration back to the corrupt people that are running it instead of staying the course and making it a respectable department.

As far as getting my facts straight and starting rumors, I would say you are the one spreading rumors. Unless of course you are the Bad Lt Kiernan how would you know?

All of my posts are factual from reports of media.

"He admitted to four of 32 charges he had been facing, including failing to immediately report a prescription drug-addicted officer who was on the drug unit, and giving a false statement to internal affairs investigators, according to a Southampton administrative settlement agreement." 'Review: Addicted cop was allowed to work' 3/12/13 Rhymes with Tuesday

Lt Kiernan lied to internal affairs ie; "giving a false statement to internal affairs investigators,"

As far as outside investigations the DA's office has publicly commented several times in 27east that they have open investigations. According to Rhymes with Tuesday the US Attorney is investigating.

As PBR says "Ask questions and see who complains the most" FUOU812, looks like we hit the nail on the head." May 11, 13 9:30 AM

Agreed, put everyone under oath and let the truth come out. It is long overdue!

fuou812 - "It's time to "out" the so-called confidential sources that Mr. Wright has been talking to." Were the sources supplying misinformation and 27east publishing lies or were they just confidential sources?

hugoistay - Let's just start with wow, this town needs help.

"Wilson was making mountains out of mole hills and when he was told he was wrong he went crying to anyone that would listen" -

Were they mole hills? The District Attorney has released several people from prison and exposed the taxpayers to huge lawsuits. "Two Are Released From Prison" 5/31/12,

Documents were shredded, removed and had to be seized by the District Attorney. - "D.A. SEIZES RECORDS" 5/10/12

"Those "felony charges" were a perfect example. It has always been a common practice to change your time from sick to vacation but Wilson didn't know and he was stretching it as part of his smear campaign against a great cop, just check his record." -
Just because it is common practice does not mean that it is right & that common practice led to, "The lax controls on the accrual system apparently led to the town overpaying five retiring officers more than $44,000 in compensation for unused accrued time off last year." - ‘Troubling’ Practices Subject Of D.A.’s Probe 11/29/12

"Then Wilson blows the whole incident with Sickles up. He was prescribed the medication so what is the problem? Does that make the bad guys not bad anymore? He didn't do anything other than take the drugs he was prescribed end of subject." -
He should not have be at work with drugs in his system that could alter his performance. Alcohol is legal, should any officer be allowed to work under the influence of that too?

"He is gone and we aren't so lets get back to work and keeping this town safe."

That is very concerning because we, the public, are not sure who we need to be kept safe from - the criminals, you or both.

Lt Kiernan seems to be responsible for all the "bad press" as you call it. Prisoners released, lawsuits, and DA investigations do not happen because of bad press. Lt Kiernan, like all the cops, gets paid a lot of money. 73 days pay penalty was probably very costly as well as his admitting guilt.
"Pleading guilty to the four disciplinary charges satisfied 28 remaining counts, many of which dealt with Lt. Kiernan’s oversight of the Street Crime Unit. He was forced to give up 73 days of sick, personal and vacation time as a penalty. He has since returned to active duty.
Lt. Kiernan’s attorney, Mr. Perini, said the agreement stipulated that while a guilty
plea was entered to the four disciplinary charges, the lieutenant was only admitting to failing to adequately document his assigning another officer to serve as driver for the officer in question while he was on duty." - 3/7/13 'UPDATE: Top Cops Dispute Charges That Street Crime Unit Office Was Strewn With Drugs'

Where are your "facts"? You are just rambling without any basis since Lt Kiernan is the self admitted and confirmed liar. I have no idea why Southampton Town would keep someone in the department that lies to internal affairs.

" May 17, 13 11:05 AM

fuou812 - I as well as most of the other posters here would welcome the NYS Attorney General or US Attorney to come in a clean the mess up.

With the content of your posts I would assume that you would have to be a town board member or Lt Kiernan to have that knowledge.
"As to his "felony" charges, he was told by the town administrator that that was a bookkeeping error and he went ahead with criminal charges anyway with the assistance of an individual who wanted Kiernan's job. The DA told him that those charges were ridiculous and to take a hike"
"And finally, there are no federal, state, county or local investigations afoot"
"Wilson goes on vacation and refuses to return when ordered to do so by the supervisor and you question whether it was the worst storm in East End history"

Based on your angry tone and the statement "Pleading guilty to 4 of 32 charges was a business decision since even being found innocent would cost more time" it would appear that you are Lt Kiernan.

If you are then I would like to say that you disgraced the Southampton Police and Town residents. You costs us hundreds of thousands of dollars in settlements, legal fees and consulting fees. You made our town less safe by allowing the drug dealers to be released. One would think that you would be counting your blessings in that you still are a police officer making a great salary, but instead you are here posting like a child who will not accept responsibility for his actions and pointing his finger at anyone else he can. That attitude shows that you feel either above the law or that you have done nothing wrong. Since you feel that way you will probably continue your corrupt conduct as usual and that is the saddest part for all of us residents." May 17, 13 4:12 PM

East Hampton Town To Be Free Of FAA Control; Seeks Increased Revenue

So, they do not want FAA funding but need to increase revenue WHILE cutting back on traffic going to the airport. This seems like a recipe for failure." Dec 28, 14 5:12 PM
