Town Police Chief Appointment May Be Clouded By Politics

Editor's Note: The Southampton Town Board has scheduled a special meeting for Friday, April 15, at 11 a.m. to appoint a police chief.
Apr 14, 2011 9:33 AM

The top position in the Southampton Police Department is up for grabs, and two longtime local law enforcement officers, Town Police Captain Anthony Tenaglia, and Southampton Village Police Chief William Wilson Jr., have emerged as the two contenders—and the decision might boil down to politics.

Capt. Tenaglia—who was widely seen as the presumptive successor to Police Chief James P. Overton, who is retiring tomorrow, April 15, after more than four decades of service—interviewed with the Southampton Town Board for the chief’s spot last Friday during an executive session meeting of the Town Board.

But on Monday, an email signed by Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst, Councilwoman Bridget Fleming and Councilman Jim Malone was sent to the entire Town Board announcing their intention to interview Chief Wilson for the job on Friday, April 15, in a hastily called special meeting, which will include a closed executive session. “Please be advised that upon full consideration, we are supporting inviting Chief Wilson in to interview for the Town Police Chief position,” the email reads. “It is our collective opinion this will serve in the best interest of the Town by engaging in a fully transparent and equal opportunity screening process.”

Hours later, a public notice was emailed scheduling the special meeting instead for Tuesday, at which Chief Wilson was interviewed. It was advanced from Friday to Tuesday, Ms. Throne-Holst explained, because Ms. Fleming would be out of town on Friday.

Councilwoman Nancy Graboski said this week she was surprised by the email. The initial note alarmed Ms. Graboski, who on Tuesday speculated that something was politically amiss; she declined to flesh out her thoughts, but she noted that they were based on “rumors” confirmed by more than one source. She also said she believed that Chief Wilson was the Town Patrolmen’s Benevolence Association pick for the job.

“There are things going on behind the scenes, shall we say,” Ms. Graboski said.

Ms. Graboski said Chief Wilson was supported by the town’s PBA, the police union that in prior years has hit walls in negotiations with administrations, but which has supported Ms. Throne-Holst politically. Union President Tim O’Flaherty did not immediately return a call seeking comment and was not expected to be available until Friday.

Ms. Throne-Holst was credited with brokering contract negotiations last summer with the union, which avoided the need for arbitration, resulting in potential taxpayer savings in the contract. Ms. Throne-Holst received the PBA endorsement in her bid for supervisor in 2009.

Ms. Graboski said her concerns also centered on whether Mr. Malone, a member of the Conservative Party, was being politically driven to push for Chief Wilson to be interviewed. Ms. Graboski also said she was perplexed to get a letter from Suffolk County Sheriff Vincent DeMarco in support of Chief Wilson’s candidacy for the town position. That letter was received by Town Board members on April 6.

“They’re big law enforcement,” Ms. Graboski said. “The Town of Southampton is smaller. The village is smallest. So if big law enforcement is supporting Bill Wilson in that regard, why is that? And I don’t know that. I don’t know the answer to that question.”

Mr. Malone rejected the notion that he was being politically driven in any one direction. “It’s anything but political,” he said.

Ms. Fleming, Ms. Throne-Holst and Mr. Malone all said this week that they were interested in interviewing Chief Wilson in an effort to keep all options open for what they view as a very important decision. Members of the Town Board held their cards close to the vest this week about their thoughts on the qualifications of each officer

“I want to make sure I’m doing the right thing,” Mr. Malone said. “This is not a quick, fast and easy decision for me. Absolutely not. It’s probably one of the most weighted decisions I’ll make in office this term. I’m totally serious. It’s because I ask so many men and women to put themselves in harm’s way every day that I understand the weight of this decision.”

Ms. Throne-Holst echoed that sentiment this week, noting that she was interested in making sure that with a position of the chief’s magnitude, the process should be a “fair, transparent, and inclusionary equal opportunity process.”

Ms. Fleming said that while Capt. Tenaglia was a highly qualified officer, it’s important to look at all potential candidates. “He’s obviously a very experienced, very skilled member of the police department,” Ms. Fleming said of the captain. “At the same time, this is an opportunity to look at anyone who might be qualified.”

"Paying one's dues" may be the right thing for the individual but may very well not serve the best interests of the Town. After too many years of the PD being run by a man in a cave who disregarded the instructions of HIS superiors (the board) it is probably time to conduct a search for a professional who can get the job done, do it economically, and most importantly, gain the respect and cooperation of the employees.

Your right thats why it cant be Tenaglia. He hasn't paid his dues, hopefully he'll pay them now and be exposed for the person he is known as. An abusive, ego maniac that loves himself and treats who all work with him with no respect. He is known to be a bully and one who is not respected at his own Department as well as the Law Enforcement community throughout the County. And from what Im told they don't have a SWAT team. I was told it is like a paint ball club for the elderly.

Looks to me like Grabowski is making up a conspiracy where there is none. Why would the Town not look at all of the viable options? Who says that the only manner in which someone should be eligible to make Chief is if you come up the ranks in that department. Wilson is progressive, gets along great with his rank and file and is not afraid to discipline or terminate when needed. He also seems to have a very open relationship with his current board. Best case would be to have a chief that has not ...more

SVPD Chief Wison RESCINDED the restriction that SVPD officers receive prior departmental approval before taking off-duty gigs.

So if you, for instance, are an SVPD patrolman and want to run a private security company in your spare time that takes forty or so hours a week - no problemo for SVPD Chief Wilson.

Perhaps this is why he is reported to have such a "sympatico" relationship with the non-com PBA in the Village.

The Town is not a uber rich enclave like the Village. It has multifaceted issues and is culturally diversity. It seems the issues that primarily preoccupy the Village police are traffic related and of course the sense of additional security they provide homeowners.

I should also add that one of the Civil Service procedures when utilizing tests is that Residents of the Town get priority in interviews and job placements. This is for obvious reasons - as people who are going for a town job that live within the town have the most vested interests. If the existing list has 10 qualified candidates, and Chief Overton is the only one living in Southampton Town - even if he didn't score the highest he would legally be given the highest priority because of his residence status.

PS -- The legal annals are full of employment discrimination lawsuits in which employers relied on hiring qualifications/preferences generated by so-called "independent" agencies such as Civil Service.

Bottom line, if the qualification/preference (ST Town residency) stacks the deck against a minority group, and is not specifically and justifiably job-related, it is discriminatory IMO.
