Kleiman not only portrays himself as a "retired cop", when he has never worked and received an hourly or salaried wage from any police department, he was a contracted security guard for social security. A contracted security officer is a job a lot of retired officers take after retirement but having that job doesn't make you a retired cop
He also fraudulently applied for a license to run a security company of which he received. That license gives him the authority to issue licenses to carry semi automatic hand guns to those he listed as employees of his company, they don't even have to work. Scare you yet? wait it gets better.
Kleiman has been a wannabee cop his whole life and as every good lie goes there is a hint of the truth.
Kleiman was hired by Edgewater Park NJ Police department in October of 1999, but he would be fired before making it to the police academy due to an arrest for attempted murder. No shit, articles ran in two local papers.
On the night of Oct 29th Kleiman threw a Halloween party at his then residence 1637 Perkins Ln Edgewater park NJ attended by family and friends. The story told by Kleiman and backed up by eyewitness' goes like this. It was late in the night and he was drunk in his bedroom with his wife's best friend when someone came in and told him his wife was out on the lawn yelling trying to kick out her brother inlaw and his friends. They had picked on a Beverly Police officer who stopped bye the party earlier in the night while in uniform and they were out living their welcome. Kleiman grabbed his Ruger p89 9 mil and ran out to his front yard to confront the group. During the confrontation Kleiman directed one of the guys in the group to get on his knees and then pointed his gun at his head.
One of Kleiman's friends stepped in and disarmed him shortly before the police arrived and Kleiman was arrested. When the residence was searched by Edgewater Park Police they found an odd collection of Beverly Police uniform pieces including a badge found in Kleiman's bedroom closet. Was he gay for the cop/owner of the badge and uniform found in his bedroom or is there something else going on?
While fighting the court cases Kleiman would move in with his wife's ex best friend, loose his house, divorce his wife and go bankrupt financially, morally he was already there. Through good lawyers the case was expunged from his record but thanks to the Burlington County times copies of the original news articles will be obtained and available for viewing shortly.
Kleiman leveraged several relationships one being with the public safety officer in Beverly NJ to get hired at the Beverly Police department only to be fired for failing the police academy in the early stages. He was issued a badge of which he never returned. He used that badge to get preferential treatment in many different situation over the years. Free cover charges, free beer, getting out of tickets, entry to places the public was not allowed and of course using to impress girls (once loosing the badge when he got into a fight at a Riverside Strip Club, only to have it returned to him by the bars owner the next day.) He also used that badge to get out of many bad situations of which if you can't tell yet, most he caused. If that's not stolen valor I don't know what is, but it gets better.
Once he was pulled over in his driveway in Lumberton NJ and finally an officer call him out on his bullshit when Kleiman stated he was a retired cop out of Edgewater Park during the stop. This even took place before he worked for the SPCA. Kleiman leveraged a relationship and had someone from the FOP call that officer to smoothed things out and made the "misunderstanding" go away. Wonder if that officer still works in Lumberton?
Kleiman also gained membership through returned favors and leveraged relationships into the local chapter of the FOP without ever holding a job with arrest powers. Never having been put in a single one of any of the dangerous situations most police officers face on a daily. Yet he received the privilege of gaining entry into this respected organization where members currently or previously served as Police officers putting their lives on the line every day they worked. To this day you can find his signature on FOP cards he gives out to friends and family. He also has been known to use the issuance of these cards for favors or the expectation of a future favor. Kind of tarnishes Burlington County NJ FOP lodge 2 a little, don't you think?
Kleiman was determined to become a police officer, so much that he paid to go to the police academy and became a SPCA investigator where he would investigate accusations of animal abuse. I like animals probably more than most people, but for a couple of months he wrote tickets for barking dogs and that is a far cry from the hard work of the federal/city/township/state police officers who protect our streets that he portrays to be.
Kleiman didn't get much time in his position as the SPCA Police Department was soon shut down by Governor Christie’s last action in office. The action was taken due to results from two state investigations stating that the agency was corrupt and had gone rogue with most of the agency playing cop riding around lights and sirens without a need and those not playing cop were mishandling everything else.
Kleiman carries NJ Police retirement credentials from the SPCA where he was associated for less than a year and uses those credentials to carry a firearm to this day. These credentials were obtained by the same corruption that led to the shutdown of the NJ SPCA Police Departments and should be looked into by the appropriate authorities. Thinking New Jersey State Police, Burlington County Prosecutors Office and maybe even the New Jersey Attorney General?
Kleiman actively shows his New Jersey police credentials just has he had done with his Beverly badge to gain preferential treatment whenever he can. He does this even when he knows he has never worked as a real police officer and he hasn't walked in the boots of those who have rightfully earned those credentials. He has even done so when approached by the NJ State Police on their numerous visits to his residence due to complaints for the firing of guns in his backyard gun range. One such date was 12/15/20 New Jersey State Police may want to check their body cam from that day. He has also tried to put a harassment complaint in on the neighbors who called on him to no avail.
Kleiman later went into business with his old cronies at the SPCA and opened Statewide Protective Services which can be found at https://www.statewideprotective.us/
Nothing going on there right?
Gets better. When Kleiman applied for the license for the Security company he used the address of his previous house that was currently under contract to be sold so the trail wouldn't lead to his residence in South Hampton. The State Police are very specific when it comes to locations of licensed armed security companies in their application. State Police should probably check out some of the docs presented in the gallery.
While much of what you have read may seem farfetched or out of a straight to video movie that should have never been made. I can understand your skepticism because that is some outlandish shit. But the occurrences are factual and true, backed up by supporting documentation below.
Please browse the supporting documents located in our gallery at your leisure.
and If you happen to run into Kleiman you may want to ask him a few questions like:
What police department did you retire from?
How long were you a police officer with the SPCA?
How many times did he fail the police academy?
Do you collect a police pension?
How many times were you fired from a police department before swearing in after the academy?
But please be careful, he may be carrying a gun with his questionable retirement credentials.
