Police Merger Talks End Messily in North Jersey

A possible merger of three borough police departments in northern New Jersey appears to be off the table despite a study that found the towns could save more than $1 million annually.The police chiefs of Park Ridge, Montvale and Woodcliff Lake denounced the results of the study last month. They say its findings are based on inaccurate assumptions.

And Montvale announced it has no interest in moving forward.

The Record newspaper reports the towns have now learned from the Bergen County prosecutor that they won’t be reimbursed for the $49,000 study because Montvale didn’t hold a public forum on the issue.

Woodcliff Lake Mayor Jeffrey Goldsmith says his borough still wants to look at the study recommendations. Woodcliff officers make an average $144,000 a year.
