    This portion of the Go Fund Me page doesn't make a lot of sense. Can you offer a little clarification?

    Officer Dominguez started the process of applying for a disability pension. This was followed by the Newark Police Department informing the pension board that Officer Dominguez was the subject of possible disciplinary charges for taking too long to recover from his gun shot wound. This created an unjust and unnecessary delay with the processing of the pension application and has put him in this situation today.

        So, he's really not being subject to discipline because he took too long to retire. Instead, his disability benefit period simply ran out before retirement could be granted.

            What were are simply saying is the city/department is responsible for delaying the officers retirement. Now that they've done that, they turn around and essentially terminated him. Hes still not 100% recovered.

              That's all about his union, the MOUs, and policy. Sucks, but that's the way it is.

                First, it sucks when the department screws up paperwork that delays a retirement. My heart goes out to the officer.

                OTOH, when an officer who is younger than the minimum retirement age suffers a career ending injury, it is not unusual for the disability retirement process to take longer than the duration of the officer's disability benefits program. Most officers anticipate such a possibility and throughout their career have emergency funds built up for such an eventuality. They also make it a point not to burn off every leave credit the minute they earn it and instead, build up a vacation, sick leave and overtime bank, the money from which will tide them over when paid off in lump sum upon medical separation. Pending approval of retirement, state disability or other worker's compensation benefits should be available as well.

                On the bright side, I'm going to assume the officer was sharp enough to apply for disability retirement on the day of, or prior to when his medical leave ran out. If so, his disability retirement (when approved) should be retroactive to that date so he should be getting a large, lump sum check with which he can pay back all those friends and family members who advanced him money.
