exactly what is going on with the Chief, i can honestly say, i hope nothing is wrong and i hope he stays, because i had a scary situation one week and Seargent McNeil and Chief Anderson went above and beyond when i walked into the station and they didn't even know me, just that i was new to the Township....... I hope it all works out... i would like to know what is going on and if we the public can help...

"The facts". It seems very strange that you accuse me to be a.k.a. Yet you name yourself "The facts". My name is what it is and that's why I signed it. You obviously are another story. By the way, no beef, just what was explained to me after speaking with officers of the department. Its time for him to go.

That's the problem, no one knows what is going on. Why suddenly is the public hearing for the Chief cancelled? Because there is no reason to suspend the Chief, if there was believe me, it would be on the front page of the paper. You are not alone is seeing that Chief Anderson genuinely cared for this township and its citizens. A choice few want Chief Anderson out and because of that, this township will loose one of our finest assets.

Nobody knows what's going on because it's apparently a personnel issue and can't be spoken about Maybe it was cancelled at his request? And it doesn't appear as if it's a "few choice" since NONE of the officers have come to his aide which is extremely rare in this type of case.

Have any of the officers come out against the Chief? If so, Mr. Jordan, point me in that direction and give me the names. Nice try but no go.
