The police officer was in uniform, his marked cruiser parked out front.
But Edison patrolman Alan Varady wasnt investigating a crime as he sat in a township back yard Saturday afternoon.
He was drinking beer at a barbecue when he should have been patrolling the streets, according to three law enforcement officials with knowledge of the case.

How does a cop make $131,500? Oh, I forgot..........overtime.
Just making sure there were no dogs wandering through the backyard.
Goodness yes! Even dogs that are tied up. ;(
Heck here in Tampa two of our finest spent 8 hours drinking in a strip club when they should have been responding to high priority calls.
Ohhh, a public service union - he was on break - what's the big deal?
It’s in NJ where nothing is making sense anymore if it ever did.
Edison has a couple of really good diners and my favorite mall. It use to have a huge Ford motor plant on route one where they made the pinto I’ve been told.
That’s gone now too, turned into a huge SAMs club
I understand a supervisor’s home was fire-bombed by an Edison officer......sounds like the dept is in big disarray.
I don’t fault NJ, per se, this could be Connecticut in a heartbeat.
Anything is possible. I’m scared I’m loosing my childlike sense of wonder at the world. If it dies so will my sanity
This is worrisome.
“Edison has a couple of really good diners and my favorite mall. It use to have a huge Ford motor plant on route one where they made the pinto Ive been told.”
I liked the Parsonage Diner. I think it is now a CVS.
I like the one right next to the Menlo Park Mall that looks like a 50s diner and the Skylark has a huge following too,
I believe the Skylark was featured on one of those cooking shows.
You are right . That one with Guy F on the food network
