The New Jersey Policemen’s Benevolent Association’s Cape Atlantic conference endorsed Republican Joe “Tokyo” O’Donoghue for Atlantic County Sheriff Wednesday.

“As a police officer for my entire adult life, to have the PBA endorse me is a true honor.  I’m honored by the men and women who put on a uniform and a badge to protect our communities each day,” O’Donoghue said. “Each night I pray for these officers who have put their lives on the line to keep us safe. When I’m elected as your Sheriff in Atlantic County, I will do whatever it takes to support them.”

O’Donoghue will face incumbent Sheriff Eric Scheffler, a Democrat, in November.

“On day one we will put the focus back on working warrants, augmenting local investigations and being a resource for police agencies across Atlantic County.” O’Donoghue said. “It’s time to get back to real police work.”
