City of Hoboken announces:


CITY OF HOBOKEN BEGINS PROCESS OF IDENTIFYING NEW POLICE CHIEF

The City of Hoboken is beginning the transition process of identifying a new Police Chief and is opening up the Chief’s test to all Captains and Lieutenants. Police Chief Anthony Falco will be mandatorily retiring on June 31, 2014. Under New Jersey State law, Police Chiefs must mandatorily retire at the age of 65.

“During Chief Falco’s tenure, crime in Hoboken has remained at historic lows,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “We want to build on this progress and create an even more professional Police Department to serve our great City.”

Police Chief Anthony Falco will retire by law next June.
The search for a new police chief begins.
