The PBA membership is comprised of 94 of the police officers within the Township of West Orange. The PBA membership is committed to the prevention of crime, protection of life and property, enforcement of laws and ordinances and the safeguarding of constitutional rights and guarantees. Since our incorporation on February 9, 1933 we have strived to obtain the highest standards of performance, professional conduct and ethics. We continue to develop a community partnership and public trust to fulfill our mission.
The PBA also represents the police officers in contract negotiations, grievances and matters pertaining to work conditions and officer safety. In this capacity we work diligently to ensure that our members are fairly compensated and provided the training, equipment and support needed to serve the public effectively.

Timothy Groves Memorial Scholarship Fund
The world lost a bright light with the passing of Officer Timothy Groves. Officer Groves was a beloved, committed, and passionate officer of the West Orange Police Department. A lifelong West Orange resident, he bravely served his hometown for fourteen years before he ultimately succumbed to cancer at the age of 48.
In memory of their lifelong friend, Officer Groves, Lisa and Donald Shauger recently established the Officer Groves Scholarship with the West Orange Scholarship Fund (WOSF). The WOSF, which was founded in 1923, awards scholarships annually, on Senior Awards Night, to West Orange High School graduating seniors who are in financial need and have demonstrated academic achievement. The Officer Groves Scholarship Award, in particular, will be for the benefit of students in financial need who are interested in law enforcement and/or in pursuing the academic path of Criminal Justice.
