Signed into law last week, P.L. 2019, c. 221 prohibits any county or municipality from issuing a law enforcement badge or a badge that may be mistaken as a law enforcement badge to an elected official except for any county elected official who is elected as a law enforcement officer. This prohibition also applies to elected State officials, the board of directors of New Jersey Transit, and Commissioners of the Port Authority of NY/NJ. This new law was effective August 9, 2019, however, it does not take effect for the Port Authority Commissioners until New York State adopts similar legislation.
