Citizens in New Jersey can’t learn how much overtime is paid to state troopers and other state law enforcement officers.

Attorney General Paula Dow has made confidential any records that “may reveal or lead to information that may reveal” an officer’s assignment.

Dow spokesman Leland Moore tells the Statehouse Bureau of the Star-Ledger and Record newspaper the measure applies to the State Police and officers in the state Law and Public Safety Department.

It does not include local police departments.

State records show that troopers earned $25.5 million in overtime last year and $15.7 million as of September this year.

Sgt. Robert Galik topped the list last year, earning $63,221 in overtime on the turnpike. He has made $50,685 through the first nine months of this year.
