ABOUT NEWARK BRONZE SHIELDS

The Newark Bronze Shields is the African-American police officers association within the Newark Police Department. The organization was founded in 1959 by a group of African-American Police Officers who were battling racial discrimination within the Newark Police Department. One of the founding members, Floyd Bostic, is still a member and serves as our guiding light for today's organization.

CIVIL RIGHTS LEADER

We have taken our fight for our members all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States. In October 1981, The Newark Bronze Shields, Inc., petitioned for a Writ of Certiorari to the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit against the New Jersey Department of Civil Service on behalf of African-American Police Officers.

“WHEN STOPPED BY THE POLICE”

FOREWORD

The basic materials in this pamphlet were prepared by Police and Community Enterprises --Project PACE. The National Black Police Association, an umbrella organization representing morethan35,000 dedicated African American police officers nationally, stands for unity, justice, and peace. The NBPA exists to help prod law enforcement agencies to be sensitive to the needs and concerns of minorities, women, and the poor. We hope this pamphlet will be helpful.
