The Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office is getting involved in the Wildwood dispute between the police chief and the mayor. A letter was hand delivered by Cape May County Prosecutor Robert Taylor on Tuesday to all involved parties at Wildwood City Hall that Lt. Kenneth Super and Detective Mark Weeks from the Prosecutor’s Office will monitor the operations of the department. In the letter to DeMarzo, Taylor writes that he has “previously tried to prevent your (DeMarzo) interference in the day to day operations of the department.” Chief Steven Long is maintaining control of the department and will still run the day to day operations.
Taylor went on to write, “I am advising and directing in advance the Chief and all officers of the Wildwood Police Department that they can ignore any attempt by you to direct operations in the department.”
Taylor says he is making this decision as the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the County under N.J.S.A. 2A:158-5, 52:17B-112b.
In an interview with Coastal Broadcasting, Taylor said DeMarzo was out of control. DeMarzo did not return a phone call regarding this issue.
