I will protect your pensions. Nothing about your pension is going to change when I am governor. - Chris Christie, "An Open Letter to the Teachers of NJ" October, 2009

We invested in the training of these cops - now Tennessee reaps the rewards:
Police officers facing layoffs in Newark, Camden and other New Jersey municipalities may be taking their pink slips and heading south.
Several southern cities — including Nashville, Atlanta and Norfolk, Va. — are recruiting in the Garden State in an attempt to lure New Jersey’s finest to their police departments.
"These people are an asset," said Detective Leonard Keeler of the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department, which wants to hire at least 100 officers within the next year.
An asset NJ tax dollars developed.
Nashville police will not pay relocation costs for New Jersey officers moving south. But relocating officers would save on other costs. Unlike their New Jersey counterparts, Nashville police don’t contribute to their pension, which is funded by the city. 
No pension holidays in TN? I'm just shocked...
