About the Newark Police Department

The Newark Police Department has two primary divisions and several important bureaus.  The Patrol Division and the Detective Division are the largest organizational entities within the Newark Police Department.  The Patrol Division, the largest, is organized into four police district commands and a Tactical Patrol Bureau.


The Detective Division of the Newark Police Department is organized into four components: Major Crimes Bureau; General Investigations; Narcotics; and the Property and Evidence Bureau.  The Bureaus of the Newark Police Department include: Records and Communications Bureau; Special Operations Bureau, Youth and Community Services Bureau; and, the Internal Affairs Bureau.

Born and raised in Newark, New Jersey, Samuel Clark joined the Newark Police Department on November 20, 1972.  During his 25 years with the police department, Clark has worked as a police officer in the patrol division, a detective assigned to the juvenile bureau and has variety of investigations ranging from harassment to homicide.  He was promoted to the rank of sergeant in 1994 and to lieutenant in 1997.


Samuel Clark’s book, “Total Misconduct”, presents a detailed account of corruption and official misconduct within the Newark Police Department. To some, the shocking events described in this book may appear to be exaggerated. Unfortunately, they are not. Clark worked with a handful of brave police officers to expose the existence of wide spread police corruption in the Newark Police Department. These officers presented documentary evidence of serious police corruption to local and state politicians, a county prosecutor, the State Attorney General, the U.S. Attorney General, and the FBI.


Clark’s book asks, “Why did elected officials and government law enforcement agencies ignore the evidence and the complaints of serious police corruption from over 26 credible and reliable police officers?”  Samuel Clark presents facts, official police documents and report numbers, court transcript excerpts and case numbers, and newspaper accounts, enabling the reader to make his/her own conclusions.
