Undercover Cops Face Off With NJ State Trooper

Bergen County Executive Kathleen Donovan’s chief of staff this afternoon said that two county police officers received unspecified discipline for going face-to-face with a New Jersey State Police trooper in a profanity-laced shouting match on the shoulder of the NJ Turnpike.

The officers berate the trooper for briefly removing his gun while investigating their unmarked van, in a May 31 confrontation captured on the trooper’s dashboard video camera and first reported exclusively on CLIFFVIEW PILOT in June.

The six-year veteran shouts back that a series of incidents involving carjackers posing as police — two of which that occurred within the previous two weeks — had him wary.
