NJ officers disciplined for taking department-owned generators for personal use during Sandy
By David Karas/The Times
EWING — Two Ewing police officers have been disciplined for taking a pair of department-owned portable generators from police headquarters for personal use in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Chief Robert Coulton said today.
An internal affairs investigation was prompted after the unauthorized use of the generators was reported to Mayor Bert Steinmann. Neither officer has been identified, and township officials would not specify the nature of the discipline that resulted.
Steinmann said the officers probably needed supplemental power at unofficial locations, such as their homes.
