Passaic Recreation Director Was in Pretrial Intervention


Cowen, Richard, The Record (Bergen County, NJ)


PASSAIC -- On the day he received a $10,000 raise and days after coaching a city baseball team in a national championship tournament, Eriberto "Eddie" Carrero was told he had to undergo a criminal background check to keep his new job.

Council members voted 5-0 Tuesday night to raise Carrero's salary to more than $75,000 as director of the new Department of Recreation, Cultural and Senior Affairs, which was created three weeks ago when the recreation department he ran was merged with two other departments.

On Tuesday night, Carrero presented the Passaic Indians, a 9- year-old traveling baseball team, to the City Council after it finished third in the American Amateur Baseball Congress national championships held over the weekend in Brownsville, Texas.

The audience and council members cheered the team, which had won the state championship to advance to Brownsville. Carrero helped raise $15,000 in donations to get the players and coaches to the tournament.

"Hats off to Eddie Carrero," said Council President Gary S. Schaer.

In 1998, Carrero was fired from his job as a Passaic police officer after pleading guilty to theft and official misconduct. The state charged that he and four other Passaic police officers were paid for security details in the Passaic public schools without ever showing up, records show. …
