$3.4 million in overtime paid out to little-known police unit

"A little-known police force that patrols state institutions and accompanies child welfare workers to potentially dangerous homes piled up $3.4 million in overtime last year, boosting the payroll 34 percent," reported Lawrence Ragonese and Susan K. Livio of The Star-Ledger (Newark, N.J.). The review of state payroll records showed one employee averaged 45 hours of overtime hours per week. Officials cite short staffing as the reason for the overtime, but others have called for an improvement in oversight.
