The New Brunswick Police Department has been re-accredited by the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police, confirming the department’s continued adherence to the most stringent standards governing law enforcement in the nation.
Accreditation is a voluntary process that departments may undertake to measure their policies, procedures and organizational structures against those standards set by New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police (NJSACOP). It entails a set of 105 standards (best practices) and 407 proofs of compliance for those standards set by the NJSACOP, addressing all aspects of police work.
Steadfast dedication to officer training, operations management and long-term planning have driven the New Brunswick Police Department’s continued ability to meet the standards and goals of accreditation.
“Our City deserves nothing but the best and our police department’s latest re-accreditation is evidence that our department operates in line with the finest possible standards and is constantly striving to be the best public service agency that it can be,” said Mayor Jim Cahill.
Accreditation is a voluntary endeavor, but once achieved, is valid for three years. New Brunswick was first accredited in 2013 and achieved re-accreditation in 2016. This latest round of re-accreditation is valid now through 2022.
“The New Brunswick Police Department is committed to service and protection of the New Brunswick community,” said Police Director Anthony A. Caputo. “We take very seriously our planning, management policies and officer training to ensure that we provide the highest quality public service to our community each and every day.”
