Wildwood Crest mayor asks prosecutor to assign monitor for police department

I have obtained, via an OPRA request, Wildwood Crest Mayor Carl Groon's December 3, 2013 letter asking the Cape May County Prosecutor's Office to appoint a monitor for the Wildwood Crest Police Department.  Groon said that due to Chief DePaul's retirement "and as a result of the ongoing internal affairs investigation, I am unable, at this time, to appoint either an acting or permanent Chief of Police.  The letter is on-line here.

According to Borough Clerk Janelle M. Holzmer, "no written response has been received from the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office as of [January 23, 2014."
