Newark Police Dispatcher Suspended Without Pay After Internal Investigation


A Newark Division of Police dispatcher is being disciplined for multiple findings of misconduct following an internal investigation.

According to The Newark Advocate, Communications Operator Rochelle Gliva was the subject of three investigations involving her conduct between April 30 and June 7.

The paper reported that Gliva has been with the department since July 2011.

According to the Advocate, the complaints against the dispatcher stemmed from not following protocol, such as not calling a sergeant or captain before dispatching detectives.

Gilva was suspended for 30 hours without pay as a result of the investigation.

Gilva was disciplined six other times since being hired. The discipline stemmed from issues such as being rude to a caller, running her personal information through law enforcement databases and failing to turn a pay sheet in.
