There are also numerous other members of the Bowie family "toiling away" in Delaware County, the land of clans.
Local press wrote - twice in 2013 - about the little fact that Jeff Bowie did not even pass the civil service test while working for Delaware County District Attorney's office forever.
Yes, that's right.
A person who "earned" $77,700 in the year 2013, did not have on file evidence that he passed a civil service test.
Usually, a person cannot even be hired without such evidence.
Not in Delaware County, obviously.
Now let's see how Derek Bowie, Jeff Bowie's nephew, was hired for the position of Delaware County Deputy Sheriff in - he said at the deposition in Kylie Smith's case, November of 2009.
Here is Derek Bowie's "educational background" - a dropout of the Broome County Community college after an incomplete year at that community college:
New York state "Deputy Sheriff's exam" does not require more than a high school to take the exam, so that may be ok.
With one exception - in answers of the Delaware County to FOIL requests, it was not revealed that Derek Bowie took or passed that exam.
Here is Derek Bowie's work experience, according to his own sworn statements at the deposition on April 14, 2015:
So, on April 14, 2015, Derek Bowie was 33 years old.
He dropped out of Broome Community College at the age of 19 or 20, which makes it 2001 or 2002.
At that time, Bowie worked at a Chi Chi's Restaurant in Johnson City - a Thai food restaurant which reportedly is closed by now.
Bowie worked at Chi Chi's "for 3 or 4 years" from 2001 or 2002 - up to 2004.
Bowie worked at Chi Chi's until 2004 at the same time as working at Deposit Computer Services, Incorporated, or DCSI.
Here is what DSCI is, does and contact information of its managers.
"Providing application server provider (on-line ASP) services. Involved in Carbon Processing Services, Financial Services, Logistics, and all other forms of information capture, manipulation and storage outsourcing services"?
So, Derek Bowie worked, for 3 or 4 years, in a place that captures, MANIPULATES and stores information for other people?
Gets more and more interesting.
While police personnel records are sealed by Civil Rights Law 50-a, records or prior employment are perfectly subpoenable, so where Derek Bowie worked puts out a trail of places that can provide information about him and people who can be subpoenaed to testify about him.
So, Derek Bowie, worked in Chi Chi's and in DCSI at the same time until 2004, when he was "laid off" by DCSI - or fired? That is up for grabs in any civil lawsuit for discovery to verify.
The company still exists.
After Bowie was allegedly "laid off" by DCSI, he claims he collected unemployment.
Unemployment is not usually collected if a person is fired for cause, but it needs to be verified whether Derek Bowie told the truth or lied whether he collected unemployment - given that Derek Bowie lied about other things, and fabricated evidence in his submission to Workers' Compensation (presented what was described in his medical records a bruise, possibly a self-inflicted bruise, according to the video provided in discovery in Barbara O'Sullivan's case, as a bite, which is a materially different injury), it will not be beyond him to lie on this topic, too.
While collecting unemployment, Derek Bowie practiced martial arts and received a purple belt in karate.
Ok, after Derek Bowie was allegedly laid off from DCSI, allegedly collected unemployment - he did not say what happened with his parallel employment at Chi Chi's, by the way - he wouldn't be able to collect unemployment if he continued working at Chi Chi's - Derek Bowie allegedly got hired, for two weeks, by a "Val Blue Associates" in Binghamton, NY. I did not find such an organization on the Internet.
After two weeks at "Val Blue", Derek Bowie allegedly got a "better job" at James Cammer Building Contractor, as a carpenter and carpenter assistant, where Derek Bowie allegedly worked until 2007.
So, in addition to working for a company that "captured, manipulated and stored" information, and holding a purple belt in karate, Derek Bowie is also an accomplished carpenter.
Here is information about James Cammer Building Contractor available on the web:
In 2007, at the age of 25, according to his own statement of his age (33 in 2015), Derek Bowie got hired full time by the Deposit Village Police, while he started working there part-time on March 15, 2005 (at the age of 23), while also working as a carpenter/assistant carpenter at James Cammer Building Contractor.
Derek Bowie worked for the Deposit Village Police - including part time - for 4 years, from 2005 to 2009.
Then he was "invited for an interview" by Delaware County Sheriff's Department (while his uncle Jeff worked as an investigator for the Delaware County District Attorney's office) - and, without even filling an application, without verification of his credentials or residency, he got hired as a Deputy Sheriff of Delaware County since November 1, 2009.
Nowhere in the deposition there appears a question - or answer - whether Derek Bowie has passed two tests:
1) a civil service tests - necessary for such an employment, or
2) a Sheriff's Deputy test - also necessary for such an employment.
But, his uncle Jeff Bowie worked for the same county without any petty formalities for years, such as:
- without being properly appointed from a civil service registry (meaning - only people who first passed a civil service test and, after passing the test, got on the civil service registry, can be hired for civil service jobs);
- without ever taking a civil service exam - for his current position or any other; and
- with an expired certification as a deputy sheriff (without an indication when the certification ended)
As I said before, Delaware County, NY, according to its own answers to my FOIL requests, does not have an anti-nepotism policy (a policy prohibiting close relatives from working for the County).
What the County apparently has, as we see, is an unwritten policy of hiring relatives into positions of power without ANY applications, without the necessary credentials, and obviously not "out of civil service registry" - BUT BY INVITATION.
And that little policy exposes the County - and all of us captive cash cows, the taxpayers feeding that County's coffers - to a huge liability for civil rights violations.
Make your County officials accountable.
Demand impeachment and criminal prosecution of those who, for years, continued to engage in this little corrupt scheme of "my clan is my best credential (even when I commit a crime)" - and that little policy is funded at your expense, Delaware County taxpayers.
Demand change from the County.
I certainly will.
