TRENTON – Sen. Troy Singleton will be honored by the State Troopers Fraternal Association (STFA) as its 2020 Legislator of the Year at an awards ceremony in June in Old Bridge, the associated said.
Founded in 1963, the STFA was created to improve the working conditions of the members of the New Jersey State Police.
“Senator Singleton has been a longtime friend and supporter of the men and women of the association,” said Wayne Blanchard, president of the State Troopers Fraternal Association in a statement. “The association wishes to recognize Senator Singleton in particular for his work during the 218th Legislative Session, by sponsoring legislation to enhance trooper safety such as strengthening the ‘Move Over Law.’
“In addition, Senator Singleton continues to support our members by strengthening peer advocate programs and pushing forth legislation to provide our members pension reform,” Blanchard continued.
The association works to boost the morale of the New Jersey State Police and to provide increased incentives to enable the members thereof to perform their duties with a high degree of perfection and integrity and represent them to the best of their ability.
“It is an honor to be named Legislator of the Year by the State Troopers Fraternal Association,” Singleton said. “New Jersey’s State Troopers are on the front line of dangerous, harrowing and stressful situations that put them in harm’s way each and every day. Yet, they do so without reservation.
“Whether they are aiding victims at a motor vehicle accident, or responding to a horrific crime scene, our troopers demonstrate tremendous courage and resilience. That is why I am proud to sponsor initiatives that give them the tools they need to stay physically safe and emotionally strong, and am even more proud of this recognition,” he added.
