The State Troopers Fraternal Association (STFA) is the recognized bargaining unit for all New Jersey State Troopers under the rank of Sergeant. We strive to promote the high standard of service and protection that our State Troopers provide to the citizens of New Jersey and its visitors. Our intent with this site is to better inform you as to our purpose and mission. I will address the most frequently asked questions posed to us: The STFA does not solicit the public or private sector for donations. We will however direct any inquiries to the appropriate charities and funds established independent of the STFA. The STFA is an independent and autonomous organization (separate from P.B.A. , F.O.P., etc.) with an affiliation to the National Troopers Coalition (NTC). We have strong ties with other Law Enforcement groups at the Local and National levels. We hope that your visit to our site is informative and don't forget to check the related links. Please feel free to contact us if we can be of any service.
New Jersey State Troopers Fraternal Association
On October 28, 1963, the "State Troopers Fraternal Association of New Jersey" was incorporated under the provisions of Title 15 of the Revised Statutes of 1937 (The Corporations and Associations Not for Profit Act). The purpose of this corporation is "To improve the working conditions of the Members of the New Jersey State Police; to increase the promotional opportunities of the members of the New Jersey State Police based on merit and seniority, along with an equitable promotional system; to raise the salaries of the members of the New Jersey State Police to adequate standards; To provide an orderly procedure for the smooth, rapid and mutually satisfactory handing of grievances with respect to any member of the New Jersey State Police; to dedicate its membership to the proper maintenance of law and order, to the protection of life and property and to the strengthening of the democratic principles in which we all believe throughout The State of New Jersey; 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". "The location of said corporation shall be located in North Arlington, New Jersey and such other cities as may from time to time be designated." "The number of trustees for the first year of existence shall be nine."
The STFA office is currently located at 2634 Highway 70, Manasquan, NJ 08736. We have an Elected Board of ten Officers that serve two year terms. There is a full time Association Counsel, with Troop and Station Representatives at locations throughout the state. All Officers and Representatives are enlisted State Troopers. The STFA is the recognized collective bargaining unit of all State Troopers under the rank of Sergeant. Since the Incorporation of the STFA in 1963, significant strides have been made in salary, benefits, and legislation affecting the New Jersey State Police. Our mission has not changed since October 28, 1963. We continue to strive for the best possible working conditions, compensation, and the fair and equitable treatment of all New Jersey State Troopers.
