CLARKSTOWN, N.Y. -- Suspended Clarkstown Police Chief Michael Sullivan said a consultant's study of the department is incompetent and believes its recommendations would cost the town more overall, as well compromise safety, according to lohud.com.
Conducted by the Bonadio Group at the request of the Town Board, Sullivan said he was never asked for his input, and the study group failed to speak to the one person with the largest source of information about the department, said lohud.com.
The $98,500 study found that Clarkstown could save $5.4 million a year without jeopardizing public safety by changing overtime policies and cutting back on supervisors, along with other measures, added lohud.com.
But Sullivan, who is suspended with pay as he awaits a hearing on plethora of charges, was severely critical of the study, insisting that it will make Clarkstown and Rockland County less safe, said lohud.com.
