Undercover Cops Face Off With NJ State Trooper

The trooper wasn't convinced they were police officers


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.
