Emergency Alert Program
Get alerted about emergencies and other important community news by signing up for our Emergency Alert Program. This system enables YOUR TOWN to provide you with critical information quickly in a variety of situations, such as severe weather, unexpected road closures, missing persons and evacuations of buildings or neighborhoods.
You will receive time-sensitive messages wherever you specify, such as your home, mobile or business phones, email address, text messages and more. You pick where, you pick how.
Accreditation is a progress and time-proven method of assisting law enforcement agencies to calculate and improve their overall performance. The foundation of Accreditation lies in the adoption of standards containing a clear statement of professional objectives. Participating agencies conduct a thorough and rigorous self-analysis to determine how existing operations can be adapted to meet these standards and objectives. After new policies are written, and procedures are in place, a team of trained, independent assessors from the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police visit the police department and verify that the applicable standards have been successfully implemented.
Accredited status represents a significant professional achievement. Accreditation acknowledges the implementation of policies and procedures that are conceptually sound and operationally effective.
For the past 15 months, the police department and its members have been working hard to accomplish this long sought after goal. I am happy to report that in the very near future this huge undertaking will finally be completed.
PLEASE DRIVE WITH CARE!
