Lower Alloways Creek police officer contests suspension.

On March 11, 2014, a Lower Alloways Creek Township (Salem County) police officer appealed a Superior Court judge's January 30, 2014 Order that affirmed the Township's decision to suspend him for two days.

In his Notice of Appeal, which is on-line here, Police Officer Donald Rambo claimed that he was originally served with a notice of discipline for failure to do proper background checks on firearm purchaser cards.  After a departmental hearing, the hearing officer recommended a letter of letter.  The Lower Alloways Township Committee, however, imposed a two day suspension.  After Rambo appealed, the two day suspension was affirmed by Superior Court Assignment Judge Georgia M. Curio.
