As reported by, one of New Jersey’s largest police unions is returning to Atlantic City after nearly a year of protest. The New Jersey State Policemen’s Benevolent Association pulled events in January after the city laid off 60 police officers.

The New Jersey State PBA moved its main convention last March to the Mohegan Sun casino in Uncasville, Connecticut and held smaller meetings elsewhere. Since then, the city has been bringing officers back and last week filled the last of the positions cut by layoffs.

State PBA President Anthony Wieners says the group will have its awards dinner in November, a labor training seminar in February, and a mini-convention in March in Atlantic City. Monthly meetings will also return to Atlantic City.
