Police News: Department Accreditation Ceremony Set For Council Meeting

njsacopA ceremony recognizing the recent accreditation of the Police Department by the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police is set for the Sept. 10 Township Council meeting.

The department was evaluated by a team from NJSACOP in February, according to a release from the department.

“Verification by the team that the Franklin Township Police Department meets the Commission’s ‘best practice’ standards is part of a voluntary process to achieve accreditation, a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence,” Chief Lawrence W. Roberts said in the release.

“Accreditation results in greater accountability within the agency, reduced risk and liability exposure, stronger defense against civil lawsuits, increased community advocacy, and more confidence in the agency’s ability to operate efficiently and respond to community needs,” he said in the release. “I am very proud of all of the men and women of the Franklin Township Police Department. Reaching the status of becoming an accredited agency was only possible because of their hard work, dedication and professionalism.”
