Wimberly, Singleton, Sumter & Jimenez Introduce Bill to Allow National Guard & Reserve Members Second Chance at Law Enforcement, Firefighter Jobs
Military Residents Who Have Passed the Civil Service Exam but Deployment Postponed the Fulfilling of Remaining Employment Requirements(TRENTON) - Assembly Democrats Benjie Wimberly, Troy Singleton, Shavonda E. Sumter and Angelica Jimenez recently introduced legislation to offer a second opportunity at employment to a member of the National Guard or the Reserves who could not accept a position as a police officer or firefighter because of service to the nation.
"Active duty assignments often derail plans for reserve and guard members who apply to join the police or fire department," said Wimberly (D-Bergen, Passaic). "When they are not fulfilling the part-time obligations of the reserves and the guard, we could use them here on our front lines as first responders."
