All Members and Prospective Members
Great changes have been made, and continue to be made in the
organization and direction of your New York State Park Police Benevolent
Association, Inc. (PBA). We are restructuring to provide greater benefit to our
members through cooperatively working with Council 82 and your locals to
provide for the introduction of legislation beneficial to New York State
Park Police members statewide. Most
notable of these efforts is our continuing battle to secure passage of the
twenty-year retirement bills. Additionally
we are working with Council 82 on the passage of the injury bill that
would provide you with the same level of protection after injury that is
enjoyed by most Municipal Police Officers in this state and the New York
has set up a Good and Welfare Committee to address the needs of our
members in times of crisis, and is currently working on a New York State
Park Police, PBA Scholarship Program available to members facing the
expense of higher education for their children.
maintains close ties with a network of attorneys throughout New York State
who can provide expert legal consultation regarding injury, disability,
retirement claims and Workers Compensation to it's members.
offers you a $10,000.00 Accidental Death Benefit, payable whether the
incident occurs on or off duty for the peace of mind of your loved ones.
Your PBA is
affiliated with various Police Conferences and Associations which gives us
strength in numbers, and contacts in every corner of the state.
All for an annual dues payment of only $50.00 (less than $1.00 a
week). The Accidental Death Benefit alone should be reason enough to join
if you have not already done so, especially if you have a family who
counts on your income, having another place to turn in a crisis never
Members of the Executive Board are available at 718-846-1469, 24
hours a day for any emergency.
I look forward to serving as your President, and will continue to
work for the passage of legislation beneficial to the New York State Park
Police. Please help me by
doing your part in becoming a
member or continuing your membership.
Together we can accomplish great things and achieve results we can
all be proud of.
