State Trooper, a Little Silver Resident, Admits Falsifying Records

Glenn Mannino filed reports to indicate he audited police departments when no audits actually occurred.

A sergeant for the New Jersey State Police admitted falsifying audit reports in his role as assistant head of the unit that oversees the New Jersey Criminal Justice Information System, the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General announced.

Glenn Mannino, 52, of Little Silver, the former assistant unit head of the Criminal Justice Information System Control Unit, pleaded guilty Thursday to falsifying or tampering with records.

Mannino’s duties included conducting audits of agencies that use the Criminal Justice Information System to ensure compliance with the security policies and requirements.  The state's investigation revealed that, on at least 26 occasions between October 2009 and June 2011, Mannino fabricated audit reports for law enforcement agencies that he was assigned to audit but that he did not, in fact, audit.  He falsely claimed to have visited the agencies, and to further conceal his failure to conduct these audits, he made false timekeeping entries indicating he conducted the audits, according to an OAG press release.

The Criminal Justice Information System provides data to law enforcement agencies throughout New Jersey. The system gives access to the National Crime Information Center (NCIC), and the State Police unit is designated by the FBI as the agency responsible for ensuring that system users in New Jersey comply with NCIC policy requirements related to security and proper use of the system.

Mannino was suspended without pay after he was charged in April 2013. As a result of the guilty plea, he must forfeit his employment with the State Police and will be permanently barred from public employment. The state is expected to recommend that he be sentenced to a term of probation during a hearing scheduled for April 10.

Hmmm, did he do this to any DWI reports? I mean the State Police are supposed to confirm Breathalyzer etc... are in compliance.

A similar article appeared in the Asbury Park Press yesterday. Why does The Patch have the need to report on this again, especially when it involves a family in town. Justice is running its course. This does not need to be highlighted in The Patch I liked the old Little Silver/Oceanport Patch better. -Angela Thompsen
