MAYOR ZIMMER THANKS PUBLIC SAFETY DIRECTOR TOOKE FOR SERVICE TO HOBOKEN

Mayor Zimmer announced that Public Safety Director Jon Tooke will be resigning from his position and from public service effective November 30, 2015.

“On behalf of the citizens of Hoboken, I thank Jon so much for his service and wish him the very best in the future,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “He started this position a few weeks early so he could be in Hoboken to assist with the response to Hurricane Irene, and ever since he has been an integral part of keeping our community safe, including starting up a successful Class II officer program.”
“I have greatly enjoyed and am thankful for the opportunities I have had to add value to public safety and improve preparedness in Hoboken,” said Director Tooke.

Before starting his position with the City of Hoboken in 2011, Mr. Tooke was national training coordinator for FBI-LEEDA for three years and served for nearly 30 years in the Jersey City Police Department.
