EXPLOSIVE: Veteran Toms River Cop Sues Police Department, Alleges Years of Harassment

A Toms River police officer has filed a lawsuit over what she alleges was years of harassment on the part of fellow officers in the Toms River Police Department, Lakewood Alerts has learned.

Attorneys for Rebecca Sayegh, the suing police officer, name Toms River Township, the Toms River Township Council, the Toms River Police Department, the Toms River Police Foundation, and 10 current and former police and township employees in the lawsuit.

Sayegh began working for the Toms River Police Department in 2016, where she was assigned to the Patrol Division. She accuses the department of being a “Boys Club” in which females are not promoted according to their accomplishments, noting in court documents obtained by Lakewood Alerts that “the Department has never promoted a single woman to the rank of sergeant or higher, and Claimant, with only a tenure of 8 years, is now the most senior female officer on patrol.”

Sayegh says that throughout her career she was subjected to chauvinist jokes and rumors spread about her, incredibly offensive and inappropriate comments about her physical appearance, and even outright physical harassment, the details of which are too sordid to be published on Lakewood Alerts.

She provides numerous examples of such behavior in her lawsuit and is now demanding unspecified damages.

  1. Not for nothing but this girl has made a name for her self by inappropriate relationships with married dudes, with multiple different guys from different PD’s. You can’t act like a door knob and not except to be treated like one.
