KIYC: AG's office to probe Union City PD chief

The New Jersey Attorney General's Office has officially launched an investigation into the Union City Police Department and Chief Charles Everett.The probe comes one month

EDISON - The New Jersey Attorney General's Office has officially launched an investigation into the Union City Police Department and Chief Charles Everett.

The probe comes one month after a Kane In Your Corner investigation revealed Everett billed taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars for off-duty detail work, some of which he did not actually work.

Everett claimed to work 12 hours a week providing security at the Jose Marti Athletic Field, but the Kane In Your Corner investigation found he arrived late, left early and even worked out at the police gym when he was supposed to be on the clock.

A spokesman for Union City Mayor Brian Stack confirms the city has received subpoenas from the Attorney General and says it will cooperate fully with the investigation.
