New Hearings On Sullivan Start In Clarkstown

CLARKSTOWN, N.Y. -- Suspended Clarkstown Police Chief Michael Sullivan is back in court Tuesday to resume a hearing on more than 22 charges leveled against him by Supervisor George Hoehmann.

The charges, which range from insubordination and improper surveillance operations date back to shortly after Hoehmann took office and the hiring of a firm to study how to reduce costs in the $50 million Police Department.

The problems escalated when Sullivan claims that he was ordered by the town's deputy town attorney through Hoehmann to investigate Clarkstown Police Sgt. Stephen Cole-Hatchard to find out if he had revealed confidential personnel-related information to a reporter from the Journal News.

The first hearing in February centered on 19 charges regarding Sullivan resetting his cellphone after he was suspended. During the hearing, Sullivan revealed that he had hired a private firm to retrieve the data.

The chief, who recently announced his intentions to run as a Democrat against Hoehmann in this November's election, has repeatedly denied all of the charges against him. He has been widely supported by other law enforcement departments and government agencies.
