Mercer County Prosecutor's Office looking into allegations against Princeton police chief

David Dudeck

The Mercer County Prosecutor’s office has confirmed that they are reviewing allegations of administrative misconduct by Princeton Police Chief David Dudeck.

County prosecutor spokeswoman Casey DeBlasio said in an email that “Attorney general guidelines require us to conduct all investigations where a police chief or director is implicated. It is in that capacity that the prosecutor’s office is currently reviewing allegations of administrative misconduct by Chief Dudeck.”

She said the office would have no further comment.

As first reported in The Trentonian Friday, sources said the Princeton Police Benevolent Association has filed a workplace harassment complaint on behalf of at least three officers this week against police chief David Dudeck.

The chief, a 30-year veteran, allegedly made inappropriate comments to the officers both in private and in front of other officers.

According to those sources, there was a meeting between Princeton officials and officials from the Mercer County prosecutor’s office earlier this week where they discussed the case. There, Dudeck was given the choice of resigning quietly and keeping his pension or the complaint would be pursued, the sources said.

Dudeck has served on the Princeton police force since 1983 and was named the chief of the borough police department in 2009. Last year, he was named the chief of the consolidated Princeton. Dudeck, according to the old Princeton Borough website, is an alumnus and football coach at the Hun School of Princeton.
