Brigantine Police Chief Stone Retires

From Brigantine Police Chief, John Stone: Today I am announcing my retirement as Chief of the Brigantine Police Department effective April 19, 2013. I would first like to say it has been an honor and privilege to serve the residents and visitors of the City of Brigantine for the last 25 years.

No police department can succeed by itself. In addition to the hard work of our personnel, the support I’ve received from local government, the business community, and citizenry cannot be overstated. The renewed community policing campaign I started in 2010 has gone a long way, and I feel that the community and Police Department are now partners making Brigantine as safe as it can be.

The City Council, Mayor Guenther and City Manager Jennifer Blumenthal have been unwavering in their level of commitment to see the department succeed, even throughout extraordinarily difficult economic times.

As my career as your chief comes to an end, I leave with confidence that the department will continue to be led by dedicated and motivated leaders. I have been working with Acting Chief Ray Cox for several months to make this transition as smooth as it can be, and I know that the department will continue on the proper path to serve our community with continued professionalism, integrity and honor.

To the men and women of the Brigantine Police Department, I am honored to have been your chief and am humbled by your support. Your enthusiasm and dedication for the safety of the citizens of Brigantine fills me with pride. The examples of bravery and sacrifice you’ve displayed will always be my inspiration. Never forget you perform one of the noblest professions in the world, and the people of Brigantine respect you for it.

John Stone.
