it seems Lakewood's Chief of Police, Rob Lawson felt a need to publicly announce how important and vital he is to the Lakewood community. He provided a copy of his letter being called to jury duty just like every other person might in Lakewood. The point being that it is absurd to assume that someone as integral to the safety of Lakewood as he is cannot be spared for trivial jury duty.
The chief goes on to tell the community how absurd the court system of Ocean County was by repeatedly sending him a summons to duty, ultimately not accepting his excuses and forcing him to (gasp!) report for jury duty.
He ultimately got off of doing his civic duty by claiming that he knows too much about a specific case to be impartial
.Perhaps the chief didn't want to serve while he is still getting paid by taxpayers to be at the beck and call of ALL the citizens of the town he is protecting and serving. He is after all known to be very meticulous about his salary and compensation. Catered food by Greenwald not included.
