Governor Murphy announced today that retired officers will be permitted to obtain insurance to carry a firearm in an exemption to his Executive Order 83. The rule change issued today from the Department of Banking and Insurance comes weeks after State PBA leadership began one on one negotiations with the Governor's Office to ensure retired officers maintained their ability to get concealed carry insurance coverage out of recognition for our unique position as law enforcement officers in NJ under Federal and State law.

Finally, despite any claims by other groups or unions trying to take credit this victory was solely negotiated by the State PBA and we are grateful to the Governor and his team for making it happen.
