New Jersey law enforcement officers facing criminal charges should always consult with an attorney. A criminal charge against a New Jersey police officer can have severe consequences. In addition to the statutory penalties of the criminal offense, a criminal charge against a New Jersey police officer could possibly result in a loss of job, a loss of the right to carry a firearm, and/or a loss of pension.
Domestic Violence charges, in particular, are highly detrimental to a police officer because these offenses usually involve the issuance of a temporary or final restraining order. In New Jersey, those who are the subject of a restraining order may not carry a firearm. As a result, police officers who are the subject of a restraining order are prevented from performing their duty as they must surrender their firearms purchaser ID card, duty weapon, and personal firearm to the authorities. Therefore, domestic violence charges against police officers can have a serious effect on a police officer’s job and, consequently, their pension.
