An investigation by the Atlantic City Police Department’s Special Investigations Section has resulted in the arrest of two Public Safety Telecommunications Operators and the suspension of two more.

Detectives started an investigation after receiving information from a concerned citizen regarding narcotic use by civilian employees within the Atlantic City Communications Bureau.

Two 9-1-1 operators, identified as 32-year-old Shekeia Wade from Galloway and 42-year-old Jennifer Dalton from Atlantic City, have been arrested and charged with narcotic related offenses. Wade and Dalton have also been suspended without pay.  Wade is accused of selling oxycodone to Dalton while the two were on duty.  Dalton was a shift supervisor at the time.

Two other women, who will not be named at this time because they have not been criminally charged, have been suspended without pay.

Police say no further information will be released because this is an active investigation and the potential for more criminal and/or administrative charges exists.
