Southampton Town Hires Two More Cops, Sacks Planner And Grants Coordinator In Final Budget

I believe this as much as Tenaglia was an effective leader, Kiernan isn't guilty and the Town Board has the taxpayers best interest in mind" Nov 25, 12 10:16 PM

The reform was happening with Wilson, however the town board made it so difficult for him he left. They now will be empowering people (Pearce, Kiernan) that are from the old ways.... Let the corruption continue and the only crooks that we can thank for that is the town board and the DA's office unless they actually come in and do something from the "ongoing investigation"" Nov 26, 12 6:38 PM

Pearce Is Named Southampton Town Chief Of Police

Please tell me which of my comments were unsubstantiated... I spoke the truth about each thing. Do your homework and you'll find out all you need to know, the political games of the board and Pearce and Kiernan, plus the da's investigation. If you are speaking of the other lt I mentioned then I'll bring it up with the east Quogue school board instead" Nov 28, 12 12:24 PM

District Attorney Looking At Town Police Attendance And Time-Off Payments

Hmmmm sounds like Chief Wilson tried to bring all this to the Town Board and they wanted nothing to do with it. Another thing the board was trying to sweep under the carpet for the "Good Ole Boys". I wonder what else has been brought to there attention that they won't touch, a complete disservice to the taxpayers. " Nov 29, 12 7:13 PM

Pearce Sworn In As Southampton Town Police Chief

How do you know there were no PBA members there and what makes you think he doesnt have the support of that union? I guess you forget that he is the President of the SOA, the same group of people the DA is investigating still. And if you had stopped to think about your post for a second if in fact it was Sgt Gwinn wouldnt he be a part of the SOA?" Dec 7, 12 7:58 AM

You stated that there were no PBA members there, why don't you name them since you made the statement or were you there and its first hand knowledge?
And from reading the articles in this paper, Chief Wilson did not want Pearce promoted because there wasn't a Capt position in the budget. It was another successful attempt for the Republicans to payback a favor and make a position appear out of thin air.... add Pearces name right under Kratovilles" Dec 8, 12 2:18 PM

Female Southampton Town Police Officers File Sexual Discrimination Claims

So the old chief puts sgt costa up for promotion numerous times because she deserves it and now fast forward a few months later and (check the resolutions for this coming meeting) not only is mike zarro, the SOA president, slated for promotion but William kiernan to sgt??? Something smells extremely fishy, the politics have to stop. Whatever happened to Jim kiernans charges, now his loyal soldier brother gets promoted? Pearce is just continuing what he learned from Overton and tenaglia, womanizing and keeping the old boys club firmly intact" Feb 21, 13 4:20 PM

The substation is not and has never been manned. There are only 3 police cars east of the canal year round, that's it no extras at all. Now take into account a bad call or arrest and you might be down to 1or 2. The cars you see, I'd presume are the same ones running from job to job. The town board and pd supervisors don't want the public to know this because instead of running the pd thinking about public safety and staffing it the way it should, it's all about the Benjamin's. Bring in the sheriffs or the state who will listen to the Bratton Report and not only staff the pd the way it should but will take politics out" Feb 22, 13 10:43 AM

Did you really think it was going to be different? Wilson was trying to lead the police department and have it work for the taxpayers and look what the town board did to him. LEADERSHIP and INTEGRITY are two words that the Overton/Tenaglia admin NEVER had and Pearce learned it all from them. There's not one leader among the upper crust of the town pd, and everything they do seems to just be about them..... Where's the reporting on Kiernans charges? Is he in a managerial position still or just pulling Pearces strings...... And I've known Zarro ans schurek since I was younger, to say civil service worked for them is an understatement, they were qualified to make milkshakes at SLO-Jacks, not be in charge of a police department. Scary how the old boys club works " Feb 27, 13 8:02 AM

If he was I'd love to have been a fly on the all there......dude. The old expression every a**hole can apply" Feb 27, 13 6:30 PM

Board Members Say Female Officers Were Not Discriminated Against

Go ask the patrol men and woman working the streets who is better qualified, I did. Seems the forces clear shot winner is Costa, she's served in almost every division and has the backing of the rank and file...... Something Zarro never will, he did make a mean shake at SLO-jacks. The promotion of Zarro shows the old boys club to promote incompetent people with big skeletons in there closet so they can control them..... Zarro, boden, schurek,,foster just to name a few" Mar 2, 13 7:06 AM

He very well might be an honest and good person, however he was promoted because he's a puppet and the powers that be know he'll never stand up for himself or the good of the department or township, the exact same reason he was hand picked to be SOA president. His promotion as well as many other sgts and Lt's with skeletons in the closet shows the political machine is in full affect and it doesn't matter what's best for the tax payers, only who you owe favors too" Mar 4, 13 11:04 AM

In reality disbanding the dept isn't going to help and i firmly believe its not the cops hiding the dishonest cops it's the town board, not only this one but in years past, that have negatively effected this dept. When you have people like Overton, Tenaglia, Pearce, Armstrong, Kiernan, Boden, Foster..... The list could keep going, all people who had issues that were either swept under the carpet or they were promoted. Zarros promotion over Costa just keeps the trend going, the one person who was trying to change this and allow the department to grow was run out of town by the Republicans..... What dishonesty are they trying to hide??" Mar 5, 13 9:47 AM

So if Zarro's promotion wasn't political enough over the more qualified candidates it seems the new civil service LT list that came out yesterday has Zarro dead last. Is that what the 90 minute exec session was about, was it known he wasn't reachable? The politics and dirty laundry get better everyday.... It's time the public gets the TRUTH ! " Mar 5, 13 4:16 PM

UPDATE: Top Cops Dispute Charges That Street Crime Unit Office Was Strewn With Drugs

This seems to be what happens when a law enforcement professional meets an old school wanna be "narcotics" unit and its Sgt...... If the town board truly covered this up then the DA's office needs to be firm and swift from the town board down the line to Pearce and Kiernan. Something is rotten here and I suspect it's the people still in power at the police department " Mar 7, 13 10:13 PM

Ok so riddle me this..... The Lt in charge (Pearce) was promoted to Captain and then to Chief against Wilson's wishes....... Then Kiernans suspension is lifted by the town board and he returns to work.... So where is officer sickles? Is he back to work? In a Para-military organization like the police there is ALWAYS accountability by the supervisors, is southampton that much like OZ where that doesn't happen? What goes on there?!?" Mar 7, 13 10:56 PM

Look at the town code regarding noise..... There's virtually nothing the police can do about them except go and repeatedly warn them. The town ethics board?? They are a joke, countless complaints have gone before them and have been found unfounded because they are Politically appointed, no different than Lt Kiernan, Lt Zarro and looking at next weeks town board agenda Sgt Kiernan. What's next Nuzzi for Police Chief?? Dirty Politics is ruining this town and the reputation of the good men and women sworn to protect it" Mar 8, 13 8:05 PM

Ok, so the search and photographs were done by Sgt Costa? The same one who the town board wouldn't promote to LT? Was that retribution for her doing her part of the investigation of the town boards "boy" Kiernan. I hope she wins her discrimination suit...... This is getting more interesting by the day and how shows how crooked and corrupt the town board and bosses at the police department are" Mar 13, 13 10:16 AM

Kiernan pleads guilty to charges, one of which is lying to internal affairs about his supervision, now he's the LT in charge of Patrol? Doesn't that involve supervision of sgts and patrolmen and woman, if that doesn't make u scratch your head I don't know what will. And his attorney is trying to get rid of that record..... The record of him pleading guilty to charges...... A police officer pleading guilty and he's trying to get rid of it, are you kidding me?!?! Chief Pearce and Kiernan are completely taking in circles and showing how they are trying to cover everything up. I truly hope the DA is reading this article" Mar 13, 13 4:52 PM

Kabot Says She Wants To Run For Southampton Town Supervisor Again

Ugh can politics be anymore of a joke in this town? Stay home Linda! " Mar 19, 13 7:53 PM

Items Missing From Southampton Town Police Property Room Resurface

Kabot stood by Lt Armstrong who also perjured himself (sound familiar.... Kiernan) so as far as I'm concerned Kabot is still part of the problem. Hopefully a candidate will come forward who will be able to rid this town of political corruption and PD bosses who lie, cheat and steal to fleece there pockets and careers. " Apr 1, 13 6:19 PM

Auditors Say Southampton Police Department Compensation System Is Easily Abused

So yet again here's another article of supervisory officers milking the system what a shocker. These bosses are giving a bad name to the hard working men and women who show up at our houses when we dial 911. There needs to be a cleaning of the "house" from sgt to chief and all of the town board. This is just getting ridiculous now " Apr 3, 13 8:15 AM

Southampton Supervisor Calls For Investigation Of Police Department

So the town supervisor wants to pay an outside agency to investigate the police dept?? Day late and a dollar short...... You have the Feds and DA's office investigating already, unless your afraid as to what they will find and want your own "report" " Apr 5, 13 5:53 PM

Sag Harbor Mayor, Police Chief Clash Over Proposed Officer Layoff

That village board is a joke, almost as big a joke as Southampton Town's. They voted today unanimously to adopt the budget and layoff one police officer. That police officer left another job to protect Sag Harbor and now hes being shunned. Shame on the Village Board and most of all Kevin Duchemin who being a cop himself voted for it, good luck facing your peers" Apr 18, 13 1:45 PM

Southampton Supervisor Calls For Investigation Of Police Department

That range is used only by Southampton Village Police and that entire property is owned by Southampton Village.....isnt Calverton where the terrorists from 9/11 practiced? Maybe that should be shut down" Apr 18, 13 1:50 PM

Southampton Town Police Logged Long Hours Following Sandy

214 hours of overtime in a two week period in addition to there 40 hour work week? I find that hard to believe, did they change there schedules just to cash in on the storm? For a storm who's major damage was on the western side of the island how can they justify this?? Seems like the people running the department are robbing the town blind. What is the town board doing about this? " May 10, 13 8:22 AM

My last post had nothing to do with the police officers or supervisors on the street trying to help people, deal with power outages, property damage, and protect the residents while possibly risking there own well being. My problem is the two "top dogs" how just had to worry about a paper cut behind a desk in a warm building. They should not be getting overtime like that and ESP in that excess above there 40 hour week, come on....... There def seems to be a milking of the system with those types of numbers! " May 10, 13 9:35 AM

Southampton Town Employees Get Four-Day Weekend After All

The only people who benefitted from the storm was Pearce and Schurek raking in HUGE numbers in overtime for doing next to nothing, maybe town hall should finally look into that. Thank you to the employees in all jobs that helped the town and its residents during the storm and were away from your own families!" Jun 27, 13 8:45 PM

At that point it was still capt Pearce, and no while I wasn't there my problem is the massive amount of overtime complied by both men in a two week time frame allegedly above there 40 hour work week. Capt Pearce and Lt "summer off" I'm sure were in a nice office somewhere cashing in while the men and woman of the pd, highway dept, code enforcement etc were out in the thick of things...... Long story short there OT is unjustified and I haven't heard a single thing out of town hall about it. Go to police hq on July 5th I bet u won't see either one of those men or any boss for that matter " coordinating emergency services" during the holiday weekend" Jun 28, 13 5:57 AM

Schurek Named Captain Of Southampton Town Police Department

Congrats Capt "summer off"....... Goes to show you the old boys club is still in full swing" Nov 13, 13 9:46 AM

Wasn't there an article how Pearce and Schurek made the most overtime on the Hurricane and weren't even on the road helping people? So in the same meeting they promote Schurek and transfer funds for overtime, I'd be curious to see how much of the OT is in the new capt's pocket. The town board def has shown its ineptness in the last few promotions, they are making a mockery of the police department and the good men and women who work for it" Nov 13, 13 5:37 PM

Snowstorm Dumps Up To 10 Inches Of Snow On East End

Ugh ohh I hope chief Pearce is in town for the blizzard after the fiasco with the previous chief....... Curious to see how much OT Capt Schurek will get on this storm, will there be another "clerical" error" Jan 2, 14 9:35 PM

Town Police Lieutenant Sues Former Boss And Department

Oh this might get interesting now......... " Mar 27, 14 8:27 PM

Didn't have the money? I thought departmental charges and or hearings were the responsibility of his union, the SOA, not him personally so why bring this suit now, some people are just never happy. His career trajectory as stated in the motion was affected by the dept and former chief...... It's civil service, the best candidate isn't always the answer but who was a better test taker that day ( look at the admin of the Pd or any civil service job for that example) Says a lot about the dept when the # 3 in charge is suing everyone, dysfunctional as dysfunctional gets" Apr 1, 14 2:24 PM

UPDATE: Two Remanded Without Bail In Flanders Shooting Case

It looks like it's the same person that was let out by the DA because of Kiernan and his Street Crime Team" Oct 16, 14 11:33 AM
