New Law Permits Existing Police and Fire Chiefs to Serve Longer

On April 12, Governor Murphy signed into law A-2158, which took effect immediately. P.L. 2022, c. 9 permits an existing police chief or fire chief who attains the age of 65 within the next two years to continue serving as chief until the end of the calendar year in which they reach the age of 67. This is provided the governing body approves, in writing, the retention and continued service of the chief after the age of 65.
 Within 30 days after the two-year eligibility window (2024), the Police and Firemen’s Retirement System must submit a report to the Governor and Legislature on the effect of this new provision, including the number of members who took advantage of the new law and impacts the extended service had on the retirement system.
