Tren­ton Po­lice pro­mo­tions

The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - OPINION -

Calling about Tren­ton po­lice. Once again, we have we have pro­moted de­moted and pro­moted again. If we spent as much time fo­cus­ing on keep­ing the beau­ti­ful cap­i­tal of New Jersey a safe city as we do play­ing po­lit­i­cal games within our Tren­ton Po­lice De­part­ment, there would be less crime on our streets. And would some­one please give me the def­i­ni­tion of nepo­tism. I seem to have lost my Funk and Wag­nalls. — A reader

I’m a Mer­riam-Web­ster guy my­self be­cause Funk and Wag­nalls web­site isn’t as good. M-W.com says, “fa­voritism (as in ap­point­ment to a job) based on kin­ship.”

As far as the staff moves, that’s pretty stan­dard in all po­lice de­part­ments to pro­mote within and hire new of­fi­cers at start­ing po­si­tions be­cause of re­tire­ments.
