Bridgeton Police Fighting Attack on Disability Pay

Police and Law Enforcement News

Big news here.

Out of nowhere, Bridgeton City officials made a decision to join a joint insurance fund for workers' compensation benefits. 

Rally to Fight
for Disability Benefits

Tuesday, July 18, 2006
1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Bridgeton City Hall

City Hall 168
E. Commerce Street,
Bridgeton, NJ 08302

Bottom line, police officers with the Bridgeton Police Department now only receive 70% of total pay when on leave for injuries sustained in the line of duty as opposed to the 100% they had been receiving before.

If they are in a crash during a pursuit, 70%.  If they are struck by a car during a traffic stop, 70%.  If they are shot by a gang member, 70%.

This despicable action on the part of the city is a slap in the face to every one of their officers and sends a very poor message as to how much they care about those who protect them.

This decision also appears to be in violation of both the city's own personnel policy and the collective bargaining agreement (the contract) between the city and its officers.

Other city workers will also be affected.

The New Jersey State PBA jumped right on this in support of the Local #94 chapter.


Bridgeton officers and the New Jersey State PBA are holding a rally on Tuesday, July 18 to protest this underhanded action on the part of the city fathers.  While the PBA is spearheading the effort, shenanigans like these affect all officers and should not be tolerated.

All officers and citizens are encouraged to attend and support these brave officers who work in a very busy city.

More information is listed above and at the New Jersey State PBA website. 

The City of Bridgeton is located in Cumberland County, and there are approximately seventy officers on BPD.
