Atlantic City Police Ordered to End Take-Home Use

August 27, 2009

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ - Atlantic City Police Chief John Mooney has been ordered by Mayor Langford to indefinitely prohibit officers, along with other resort officials, from bringing their city-issued vehicles home, according to the Press of Atlantic City.

With city officials claiming savings between $50,000 and $100,000 by keeping city-owned vehicles in city lots overnight, take-home cars will now be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Police officials, most affected by the decision, are required to park their vehicles at the city's Public Works building. Mooney said that his city-issued vehicle, four vehicles assigned to the deputy police chiefs and some undercover cars are not required to be parked in the city lot, but the others could endanger residents in an emergency, reported the Press.

Mooney said he plans to sue the city, claiming the mayor does not have the authority to interfere with the department's daily operation, reported the Press.
