Although it did not release the officers’ names, the Borough of Fort Lee (Bergen County) disclosed a list of its police internal affairs cases from 2011 through 2013. It also disclosed documents showing that officers were suspended 25 days and 80 days in 2011 for “failing to properly manage, document and safeguard an incident with juveniles in custody” and for 20 days in 2012 for “failing to properly document, process, and handle evidence in an arrest.”
The documents provided by Fort Lee are on-line here.
