A Camden County police chief was charged Friday with harassing a female employee, the county Prosecutor's Office said.
The alleged harassment by Berlin Township Police Chief Joe Jackson of the civilian police employee took place between April 2010, roughly a year after Jackson was sworn in as chief, and July 2012, according to the Prosecutor's Office.
The interactions included "touching, rubbing, and hugs" that persisted after the employee "indicated the behavior made her uncomfortable," authorities said.
Jackson was suspended with pay in September when the allegations emerged.
On July 16, Jackson allegedly "hugged the female employee and lifted her off the ground, causing discomfort and annoyance," the Prosecutor's Office said.
