Dear Kathryn Hutchinson,

Hi,

Your response to this OPRA request indicated that Captain Peter Lopresti has been on paid Administrative leave since 1-1-21. We believe this may be inaccurate. Please provide us with his time and attendance records if any leading up to any Administrative Leave start dates that you have referenced.

Yours sincerely,

Old Bridge PBA Local 127

Susan Nelson, Old Bridge Township

I have referred your inquiry on the Administrative leave date for Capt.
Lopresti to the Acting Police Chief for his review on this OPRA 22-103.

 

On 2/22/2022 you sent an email to the Clerk at 3:27pm.

You have asked:  “please provide us with his time and attendance records
if any leading up to any Administrative Leave start dates that you have
referenced.”

 1. This constitutes a new request.
 2. Please clarify what “leading up to” refers to – from when to when?

Once we receive this clarification, we will log in this new request and
assign a new file number to it.

Dear Susan Nelson,

Your response is inaccurate. The Original request asked for time and attendance for Capt Lopresti from 1-1-21 to the date the OPRA was submitted. YOUR response stated there was NO time and attendance records as he has been on paid administrative leave during that time.

We indicated that we believe that response by you was in error. We know factually Capt Lopresti was the Acting Chief of the Old Bridge Police Department at some point. This was public knowledge. Therefore, we attempted to clarify the request for you.

Please provide us with all time and attendance records for Capt Lopresti from 1-1-21 leading up to the time he was placed on paid administrative leave, according to you.

For example.... let's say he was working from 1-1-21 and was placed on paid administrative leave on 8-1-21 we would expect the time and attendance from 1-1-21 to 8-1-21.

Yours sincerely,

Old Bridge PBA Local 127
