Hoboken wants to kill cops with asbestos?

Asbestos danger at Hoboken Police HQ – city negligent?

The Hoboken Police Headquarters is currently undergoing “renovations.” And part of that apparently includes endangering cops. What kind of sick administration allows this criminal act to happen? Perhaps one that hates cops?

Policemen have been working in that building since 1993, and many officers and officials have encountered bad cases of cancer, sometimes fatal. And during the past two decades of asbestos poisoning, not only have members of the police force been in contact with such toxic substances, so have many local residents. This issue potentially affects hundreds of individuals.

Hoboken PBA President Vince Lombardi chimes in below.

Asbestos at Hoboken Police HQ

“As President of the Hoboken PBA, I am alerting you to the fact that asbestos was in fact discovered in HPD HQ, after the PBA and PSOA alerted officials of its possible presence during the demolition to the PD HQ lobby. Subsequently a clean-up crew was dispatched started to work on removal. However, as you can see by the attached signs posted, anyone entering the HQ should wear protective clothing. Police employees and citizens are still required to use this facility and work in it despite the warnings. The city Director Jon Tooke has not responded to my attached letter to date.

I’m told that the city states it is safe for officers and citizens to enter PD HQ and its only trace amounts of asbestos. Garbage bags are being used to section off the area while we are required to continue to work inside. “It is nice to know that these city officials are saying its safe to be inside during asbestos removal from their asbestos free offices in City Hall a block away”.

Vince Lombardi, President
Hoboken P.P.A.

This has been going on for YEARS!!!!! It started way back when HPD was housed in the basement of City Hall! MANY MANY officers and their families have suffered through the cancers and other illnesses related to their work environment and many have died as a result! It’s tragic when it’s anyone, and more so when it’s a family member or parent. Believe me I know!

The city is also saying F the public because they are allowing citizens to enter Police Headquarters for reports. 😯

This is just one example of the administrations lack of respect for the police department. The mayor has still not acted on any of the audit recommendations of 2009. Emergency communications system is crap, facilities crap, training programs crap. No excuse we need to support these fine public servants.

If they are cases of mesothelioma, then yes, this may be a contributor, but not prostate cancer etc.
