Clarkstown Complaint: Suspended Chief Profiled, Targeted Black Groups, Pols

CLARKSTOWN, N.Y. – The latest accusations against suspended Clarkstown Police Chief Michael Sullivan claim a special police unit operating under his departmental leadership illegally profiled black groups and elected officials, according to lohud.com.

The claims come from Clarkstown town officials who were responding to Sullivan’s legal attempts to end his suspension, according to lohud.com.

Sullivan, who has been suspended since July 20 and is accused of 22 disciplinary charges, had filed a legal complaint, claiming Town Supervisor George Hoehmann targeted him for firing a police sergeant, who later made significant fiscal contributions to Hoehmann’s campaign for town office, according to lohud.com.

A counter-claim asks the judge to dismiss Sullivan’s complaint and accuses both the suspended chief and Clarkstown Detective Sgt. Stephen Cole-Hatchard of violating department rules and federal laws, according to lohud.com.

The counter-claim also asks that Sullivan and Cole-Hatchard “cease from engaging in electronic surveillance,” according to lohud.com, which reported that Sullivan and Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Zugibe have denied any electronic surveillance and targeting people based on race or gender.
