Bucco: Public Safety is Critical Priority – 500 New Troopers On the Way

Assembly Republican Budget Committee member Anthony M. Bucco, R-Morris and Somerset, issued the following statement on the addition of four new Trooper classes in the current and proposed fiscal years, as highlighted in Tuesday’s budget hearing with Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa:

“Public safety is a critical priority and New Jersey is committed to having a robust State Police to keep us safe.

“By the end of next year, we will have nearly 500 new Troopers patrolling our communities, as well as 250 new vehicles to help them do their jobs more safely and effectively.

“These new Troopers are desperately needed to bolster our ranks and I commend Attorney General Chiesa for enhancing our state’s law enforcement capabilities and doing it in a way that includes the most diverse class or recruits in our state’s history.” [TLS]
