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."
