|Robert Lawson, |
Lakewood Chief of Police
The agreement, which is on-line here, identifies the officer as Matthew Moore. According to Lakewood, Moore was hired on August 15, 2005 and served until his June 20, 2014 resignation. Moore agreed to "be permanently barred from holding any law enforcement position within the State of New Jersey," but Lakewood agreed to inform any future potential employers only of "Moore's date of employment, salary and position."
Assuming that Moore would have been criminally charged for his presumed drug offense, I submitted an Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request for a copy of the criminal complaint against him. The Labor Attorney, through the Township Clerk, responded that "there have been no criminal charges at any time against" Moore.
Moore is listed on Gannett's DataUniverse as "Matthew T. Moore" and is shown to have earned $107,776 in 2013.
