Robert Kugler, a Bergen County Police Chief, is suspended over corruption and misconduct charges. Kugler is being endorsed by the county GOP as the nominee for the County Sheriff’s race, reports NJ.com

The Bergen County Republican Organization endorsed Saddle Brook Police Chief, Kugler, as the Republican candidate for the Bergen County Sheriff’s Race, despite allegations that he ordered officers under his command to provide escorts while on-duty for the funeral home he owns, continued NJ.com. 

Last month, Kugler, owner of Kugler Funeral Home in Saddle Brook, was charged with official misconduct for allegedly ordering officers to escort funerals while on duty between January 2019 and August 2020. He was also charged with conspiracy and corruption of public resources, according to NJ.com.

Despite the charges, Kugler announced he would challenge Democrat incumbent Anthony Cureton for Bergen County sheriff.

After everything we’ve been through as a nation in the last year, from the impeachment trial to the lack of leadership in the office, generation Z will speak out against corruption. Our public officials have a duty to serve their people and corruption too often occurs.
