Sources tell YWN that a Williamsburg Chaveirim Volunteer was issued summonses for having a friend of his change his tire in the first gas station on the Palisades Parkway in New Jersey.
The Palisades Police have a long history of being an arrogant, insensitive police force. The entire agency is a few officers, with just about zero police work other then issue summonses on a small stretch of highway that they actually patrol. They have a history of stopping Hatzolah ambulances transporting critically ill patients from Rockland County to Manhattan, and detaining them.
In 2008, a New Jersey lawmaker attempted to have the agency disbanded, and police patrol given over to Bergen County. That was no successful.
Earlier this month a man sued the agency, claiming he was unlawfully arrested and beaten by the officers.
