Statement by Long Branch Police Chief Jason Roebuck on the arrest of Officer Patrick Joyce, Jr

Long Branch Police Chief Jason Roebuck

As with any investigation, especially one involving a law enforcement officer, I cannot legally release certain information to the press, no matter how much I may want to, until that investigation has been completed. This was the situation with the incident involving Officer Patrick Joyce, Jr.

Now that the investigation is complete, and charges filed, I can issue the following statement, with much outrage and embarrassment. Officer Patrick Joyce Jr was charged with Criminal Sexual Contact (4th degree) and Harassment (Disorderly Persons offense) by the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office on Friday, February 8th, 2019. While the matter was under investigation, he was immediately suspended without pay, which was supported by the command staff of the department and the City’s leadership. He is now facing termination of his employment.

Adam Schneider: Life is good!

Long Branch Mayor Adam Schneider on Friday afternoon

Long Branch Mayor Adam Schneider said he was filled with a mix of positive emotions when I spoke with him on Friday, three days after he was defeated for reelection after twenty-eight years leading the city.

“I feel a sense of pride in a way I never have before since my work is now complete,” the mayor said. “A lot of pressure lifted, almost instantly gone. I didn’t even realize how much pressure.”

Schneider said his immediate plans are to put some work into his law practice before taking some time off with his wife, Pat.  Then there will be summer days on the beach as he contemplates what is next for his career. “Sitting on the beach, reading  book and taking a nap is my perfect summer day,” he said. “I hope to have lot of those this summer.”
