Police union complains that Sea Isle City police chief is "demeaning and insulting."

In a December 10, 2016 letter to Sea Isle City (Cape May County) Mayor Len Desiderio, the Cape May County Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #7 stated that "we have come to a point where we no longer have confidence in the leadership of Chief of Police Thomas J. D'Intino."

The letter goes on to state that the chief "has regularly engaged in conduct toward members of the department that can be described as both demeaning and insulting" and cites "markedly low morale, lack of positive dialogue and [a] failure to address situations involving training, equipment and grievances."

The letter, which requests a meeting with the Mayor and City Council, states that the union does "not intend to make these issues a public spectacle."
