From the Mayor's Chair by Absecon Mayor John Armstrong From the Mayor's Chair by Absecon Mayor John Armstrong Under Absecon’s form of government, the mayor serves as head of the police department with powers that include the appointment, suspension or removal of all employees of the department, although appointment of the chief and other superior officers is with the advice and consent of city council.

This sweeping language may give the impression that the mayor acts as a kind of public safety czar, but that is not so. Recognizing that civilian mayors should not be making specific decisions affecting life and safety, both elsewhere in state law and through various court cases, it has been confirmed that the chief is alone responsible for the day-to-day performance of the department while still being accountable to the mayor for its efficiency and integrity as well as to city council under its investigative powers.
