Assemblyman Hal Wirths announced today that the New Jersey State Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) has endorsed his re-election in the 24th Legislative District that includes all of Sussex County, 11 towns in Warren County and Mt. Olive in Morris County.

Wirths cited his opposition to:

  • Democrat policy turning New Jersey into a “sanctuary state”

  • Democrat proposals to force first responders to reside where they are employed 

Wirths cited his support of:

  • Pro-police legislation to protect the workers compensation of first responders who die in the line of duty;

  • Totally prohibit motor vehicle ticket quotas;

  • Require police departments to issue identification cards to those who retire in good standing so, under federal law, the retiree can carry a firearm across state lines;

  • Increase penalties for home invasions;

  • Subject cop killers to the death penalty; 

  • Calling for Cuba to extradite convicted cop killer Joanne Chesimard; and

  • Protecting the retirement of law enforcement officers without raising taxes.

Wirths, serving his first term in the Assembly, said “I am moved by the support of the law enforcement community and the faith they have put in me.

“We all have seen the unfair attacks made by left-winged activists against our police officers,” Wirths stated. “I am proud to support them against these hostile actions by those who undermine our public safety.”

FOP State President Robert W. Fox said that they endorse “candidates who support law enforcement and have the interest of our brothers and sisters at heart.”
