STATEMENT OF THE HOPEWELL TOWNSHIP COMMITTEE 

On Friday, April 30, the Hopewell Township Committee adopted a resolution concluding a police discipline matter.  The Township Committee reviewed the report of an independent Hearing Officer and adopted the Hearing Officer’s findings and conclusions. 

Pursuant to Hopewell Township ordinances, the Township Committee has the authority to accept, reject, or modify the Hearing Officer’s recommendations and to make a final determination. No member of the Police Department, or other Township employee, was involved in this review or participated in the Township Committee’s decision. 

On Monday, May 3, one of the officers filed a complaint for de novo appeal of the decision in the Superior Court of New Jersey. 

As the matter is in active litigation, the Hopewell Township Committee, the Hopewell Township Police Department, and the Hopewell Township staff will have no further comment at this time. 

The April 30 resolution is available on the Hopewell Township website, on the Clerk’s page.
