Members of the state Police Benevolent Association (PBA) last week in Atlantic City elected Anthony “Tony” Wieners to another three-year term as State PBA President.
“I was humbled by the unanimous support of the 350 delegates who were in attendance,“ said Wieners, who has served as President of New Jersey’s largest law enforcement union since 2008.
“There has been an 11% loss of officers in the past four years statewide," added the 32-year law enforcement veteran from Belleville. "Many officers have had their health care and pension costs double while the state continues to skip pension payments. The challenges of finances and crime continue to mount."
The PBA also re-elected Wieners' executive vice president, Keith Dunn, a Clark police detective.
Based in Woodbridge, the New Jersey State PBA is a 116-year-old with 33,000 members.
