Recently when i dusted off my squad constitution book i was reading allot of crap but then i found something said rules about LOSAP (Length of service award program). I said to myself what the hell is that. I did some research and its a program for volunteers for so many hours you serve you get so many credits, these credit hours take working hours off your pension. I asked around and found out that my squad discontinued this service to us members, my question is why would they do something so impractical?

For or against- Explain why?

Perhaps they felt the administrative functions required to support the program weren't worth the dollar amount received? It takes a fair amount of tracking to determine who is eligible and who isn't and it all has to be auditable in the event that the town / township is ever required to validate the payouts.

My squad doesn't have it and it doesn't bother me....we get other "perks" like covering Meadowlands events and getting to see concerts and sports games. The Meadowlands gives us discounts on tickets.

Other than that, I'm happy......well as happy as a cynical secretary can be.

My squad started the LOSAP program last year I think it is great you get points for hours you put in plus points for the years you have put in. with out logging all my time I made $1,100 for my pension.
