Police Department Completes On-Site Accreditation Process
On Tuesday, May 19th the Police Department had an on-site inspection conducted by representatives of the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police. The agency passed the inspection with near perfection and will be recommended by the assessment team for certification.
On June 11th, Chief Steven Hennelly and Lieutenant Thomas Miller will appear before the accreditation commission for a review of the assessment. At the conclusion, it is anticipated that the police department will be certified as a fully accredited Law Enforcement agency.
Accredited status represents a significant professional achievement for the agency and acknowledges the implementation of policies and procedures that are conceptually sound and operationally effective.

“This sleepy community, located in Morris County near the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, has devoted significant resources to community policing,” the report said. “The police department has created ‘10 Community Policing Districts’ with trained officers who routinely offer outreach services in each district.”
