Police officer sues alleging years of harassment, discrimination

TRENTON – A veteran Trenton police officer has filed a lawsuit alleging years of harassment, jokes about her sexuality and retaliation when she brought complaints to supervisors.

Sheila Tatarek, a 24-year officer, alleges that every time she spoke up, the discrimination got worse, according to the suit.

Tatarek filed the lawsuit in Superior Court in Mercer County naming the police department, Police Director Ernest Parrey Jr. and Sgt. John Breece.

Tatarek’s complaints center on several internal affairs cases, some which she was involved in by filing actions, according to the suit. Behavior from fellow officers concerning those cases caused a hostile work environment, which was not properly addressed by police leaders, according to the suit.
