Howell Police Sgt. R. Conte
Monmouth County NJ SWAT Commander
Special Weapons & Tactics
UPDATE: New Jersey Police Sergeant Richard Conte will appear in court in the next few weeks to face charges related to his online attempts to meet and have sex with a 15-year-old girl. Numerous sting operations in NJ and other states have apprehended many Police Officer child predators – ranging from Patrolman to Chiefs of Police. There seems to be an abundance of sexual deviants within the Police ranks and parents need to be aware of the danger they present to young children. COPFOX will post the results of Officer Conte trial as soon as they become available.
NJ Police Sgt. Richard Conte met a “15-year-old” girl on the Internet and told her he wanted to “get naked.” After a while, he set up a meeting at her home when she was alone. The 15-year-old was actually an undercover detective.
The sting that netted Sgt. Conte and 23 other child predators was part of OPERATION OPEN HOUSE.
Sgt. Conte is also the Commander of the Monmouth County NJ SWAT Team. One can only wonder what tactics and techniques are being taught and practiced by SWAT Team personnel, and how they would employ these same maneuvers on a 15-year-old girl they met clandestinely on the internet. Also, there are similar questions regarding the “special weapons” that would be utilized in the rape of a young girl (or boy) by these SWAT Team members.
The issues surrounding Police Officers and their perverted activities are plentiful and most communities must deal with the fact that many Police Officers are out to sexually molest children. To combat the likelihood that your child may be sexually molested or sodomized by a Police Officer; there are a number of preventative actions that can be taken by parents and caregivers:
- Talk to your children about the possibilities of Cop Rape, and show them recent articles and arrests of Police Officers convicted of child molestation
- Monitor your child’s access to internet chat sites, which are commonly used by Police Officers to “talk up” adolescents and set up secretive meetings; these typically take place when the parents are away on business or vacation and leave the child alone
- Know the whereabouts of your children at all times, especially when they are out at night or visiting someone; children are often stopped by cops on the street late at night and propositioned/raped
- Do not let your kids attend special summer camps, outings, or informal meetings with Police Officers unless you are present; these conditions are designed to isolate the child and exploit their weaknesses
- Instruct your child to immediately report any contact with a Police Officer, whether verbal or physical; cops will often engage in “friendly chatter” with a child in order to gain personal information such as the child’s age, likes and dislikes, home address, etc., – this information will be used at a later time to sexually exploit the child
- Use your child’s privacy settings and location tracking device on their cell phones to their full advantage by restricting calls to unknown parties, and tracking their whereabouts
- Report all incidents of Cop Rape immediately to Child Protective Services, not the Police Department where the cop works; they will often cover up for the cop or incite fellow Police Officers to further rape/sodomize the victim
- Be aware that Chiefs of Police are often engaged in child molestation; just because the Police Officer has “rank” does not mean their activities are above board
- There have been many reported incidents of Police Officers “gang-banging” a young girl or boy at Police Headquarters; for this reason advise your children not to enter a Police Station without you present
- Role play the part of a cop/kid rapist with your child by wearing a police shirt, badge, and hat. Use typical “cop language” to entice the child into coming along with you, then present the potential dangers that can result from this type of encounter. “Cop language” can include phrases such as: What is your name? We need to question you? Your parents are not available? There has been an accident? Your mother is injured? Come to the Police Station with us so we can help you?
