PBA Day in Trenton on March 26th, 2018 has the potential to be an historic event for the State PBA.  In addition to the importance of PBA members coming to the State House in great numbers to see and be seen, both the Senate and Assembly are scheduled to vote on our priority legislation (Senate Bill 5/Assembly Bill 3761) to provide independence and investment authority to the PFRS Board of Trustees, among several other PBA related bills.


Monday will be a busy day in Trenton as several major rallies are scheduled by other groups.  Parking will be extremely limited and PBA members are urged to arrive in the State House by 9am to secure parking.

Check in location:

Members should enter the State House through the State House Annex entrance on West State Street.  You will be required to go through a metal detector.  Please advise the State Police at the entrance if you are carrying.  Police identification is required to carry a firearm in the State House and it must be concealed at all times.  Once at the registration desk simply tell the clerk you want to go to one of the following rooms.  Once inside members can go anywhere in the State House Annex or State House Building.

The State PBA Trailer will be on hand on West State Street serving coffee, water and doughnuts. The State House Cafeteria, Café NJ, is located in the basement level.  Vending Machines are also available in the State House basement.

We look forward to seeing you on Monday.

As many of you already know, the Harrison PBA has been involved in a dispute with the Mayor and Council over the selection of our next Chief of Police.

Over the last several weeks we asked Harrison residents, our families, friends and fellow law enforcement officers to support us in this debate.

Most recently, we scheduled a rally for Tuesday, February 27, 2018 to continue to raise awareness about this important situation.

We are very happy to report that the Mayor and Council conducted the interviews they referenced at the February 6th Town Council meeting and have since announced that the number one candidate, Lt. David Strumolo will be the next Chief of Police of the Harrison Police Department.

We cannot thank you all enough for your continued interest and support of your local police department and the Harrison PBA Local 22.

We pledge to you, under the leadership of Chief David Strumolo, that we will do the best job we can for the residents of Harrison, and we will not take your support for granted.

The Harrison PBA invites you to join us on Tuesday, February 27, to celebrate with us and meet Chief David Strumolo and the members of the Harrison Police Department.

Legislation has been introduced this session that will lower the legal capacity for ammunition magazines.  But before rumors about the bill spread we want to make clear to the law enforcement community that active, off duty and retired officers are exempt from the reduced capacity required by the bill.  Section 2 and Section 3 of Senate Bill 102/Assembly Bill 2761 clearly maintains the status quo for all active and retired officers.   Although the bill has no impact on the law enforcement community, we monitor all gun bills closely and we will be meeting with Senate members on Friday.
