I passed by 10 construction sites in NYC and did not see one cop on the job. It is amazing how NYC functions without shaking down its citizens for off duty cops.

3 more cops face prison in federal probe of Jersey City police

NEWARK -- A wide-ranging federal investigation of the Jersey City Police Department's off-duty jobs program ensnared three more ex-cops this morning, with the former officers admitting in federal court that they participated in a bribery scheme that netted them each thousands of dollars.

James Cardinali, 38, Christopher Ortega, 37 and Victor Sanchez, 37, each pleaded guilty this morning during back-to-back hearings in a federal courtroom in Newark to conspiracy to commit fraud. They each face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

The three men are among five ex-cops who have pleaded guilty in the federal probe of the jobs program, which allows officers to work off duty as private security or traffic managers. The five ex-cops have admitted allowing companies to operate worksites without officers present; submitting phony vouchers to get paid for work they never performed; and accepting cash from cops in exchange for their participation in the scheme.

What we know about federal probe of Jersey City police

The Jersey City Police Department was rocked earlier this month by news that 12 officers were stripped of their weapons and put on modified duty, an action the city linked to an ongoing federal probe of the city's off-duty jobs program for cops.

The FBI investigation has been an open secret for months, and cops have been whispering about impending arrests. Sources with knowledge of the probe expect about a dozen arrests within the next month.

The Jersey City Police Department was rocked last week by news that 12 officers were stripped of their weapons and put on modified duty, an action the city linked to an ongoing federal probe of the city's off-duty jobs program for cops.

The FBI investigation has been an open secret for months, and cops have been whispering about impending arrests. Sources with knowledge of the probe expect about a dozen arrests within the next month.

The FBI and the U.S. attorney's office have declined to comment. None of the 12 officers put on restricted duty last week have been charged with a crime.

JERSEY CITY -- A federal corruption probe is expected to land about a dozen Jersey City cops behind bars next month, law-enforcement sources tell The Jersey Journal.

The probe is focusing on off-duty, private security work and has already ensnared one former Jersey City police officer.

Police officers have been expecting the arrests for months, the sources said.

Is that why the State Police and the Sherriff department is doing these jobs now?

It's also why filming TV shows and movies in J.C. dried up. The cops were scamming the productions out of so much money it became infeasible to film in J.C.

It still is, Yvonne. When I was on the board, I was amazed to see contracts where as much as 25% of the cost was for off-duty cops to stare into the hole. The most outrageous example I saw was one where work was being done at the end of a dead-end street and the cops insisted there needed to be a guy there. Councilman Fulop used to give lip service to this issue, but nothing is going to change until its drummed out of the police contract. As it stands now (unless its changed in the past year), the sole arbiters of whether there needs to be a cop at a site (and how many, whether its 24 hours a day, etc.) are the cops. They decide what is and isn't a public safety issue and then inform the construction company, MUA, et al how many people they will require.

I was at a MUA meeting several years ago. The biggest complaint from the MUA officials were the payments made to off duty cops. It is the reason our bills (water/sewerage) are so high.

I voiced my concerns with off-duty cops working on construction sites a few years back ... they claimed they were there for traffic control and the only one's with 'authority' to do it which as the time I thought was crap, because it would have been cost effective to have those 'lolly-pop' crossing guards at schools do the same job.
