Keyport Policemen's Benevolent Association

Local #223


The New Jersey State PBA has grown to over 33, 000 Municipal, County State and Federal Law enforcement Members. The PBA has over 350 locals across the state of New Jersey. The New Jersey State Policeman’s Benevolent Association, Inc was established in 1896, the members of the Paterson Police Department realized the need for a Benevolent and Protective Association and formed the committee among themselves. They were instrumental in bringing about the organization of the Police Benevolent Association.


The Keyport Police Benevolent Association is a labor union comprised of sworn police officers of the Keyport Borough Police Department located in Monmouth County, New Jersey. The local has been incorporated and serving our members and the public since 1972

As the bargaining unit for the Keyport Police Officers, we negotiate labor contracts with the borough, ensure compliance, and take necessary action to protect officers when needed.

As a labor union, we are dedicated to being proactive concerning working conditions, salaries, benefits, and pensions. It is the union's duty to strive to protect the rights of the officers of the Keyport Police Department according to our labor contract, department rules and regulations, and local, state, and federal law.

The Keyport Police Officers are dedicated to serving and protecting the community where we live and work. We are committed to the prevention of crime, protection of life and property, safety, enforcement of laws and ordinances, and the safeguarding of constitutional rights and guarantees. It is also in our best interest to give back to the community by making charitable donations to various local entities such as scholarships, youth organizations, and other charitable organizations.

We hope you find our website helpful and informative.  We will be updating our website periodically to keep the public and our officers informed. Thank you for your interest in the Keyport Borough Police Benevolent Association Local #223.
