A federal lawsuit filed against Lawnside police officer Carmen Colon last week led to the revelation that she had been fired from the Camden police force and high-ranking Camden officer wrote a memo noting “the obvious liability associated in hiring Colon is extraordinary,” according to a CPSJ.com report.
Court records showed the memo was written to be certain Camden would be clear of potential liability that resulted from Lawnside’s “negligent hiring,” the report says.
