“As a retired police officer, Jimmy Davis has a complete understanding of the challenges and dangers our members face can face on any given day, which is why he has always strongly supported law enforcement and made critical investments in public safety,” PBA President William Kobryn said in a statement.
“We’re excited to support Mayor Davis and his Council team and look forward to working with them for a long time.”
Davis, a retired police captain, has supported the Bayonne police by working with the city council to hire new officers, promote deserving officers to supervisory positions and investing in equipment and technology to make the city safer.
The city was recently ranked as the second safest city in Hudson County and the seventh safest city in the state by an independent study by Safe Home.
“I put on the uniform of a Bayonne Police Officer every day for 28 years and I know exactly what it takes to do this job, so I’m thrilled to have the support of my brothers and sisters in the PBA,” added Davis.
“Keeping Bayonne safe is one of the most important jobs of any mayor, and I’m proud of the work we’ve done to support each and every member of this excellent department.”
