NJ Spotlight found that more than three-fourths of New Jersey’s sheriffs are “double dipping” by taking advantage of a legal loophole that allows them to work county jobs—which can draw salaries over $100,000—while also receiving pensions as law enforcement retirees.

So-called “double-dippers” are also employed by the county prosecutors, the state attorney general, the state police, school districts, the state legislature and more. However, the practice is most prevalent in law enforcement agencies due to a state law that allows its employees to retire with full pensions after 25 years of service, regardless of age.
