The Salem County Sheriff’s Office is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of its program to achieve accreditation by verifying that it meets recognized professional best practices.
Administered by the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police, the accreditation program requires agencies to comply with best practice standards in five basic areas: the administrative function, the personnel function, the operations function, the investigative function, and the arrestee/detainee function.
Agency employees and the public are invited to offer comments by calling (856) 935-7510 ext. 1803 on Monday October 15, 2018 between the hours of 9:00am and 11:00am. Comments will be taken by the Assessment Team. Email comments can be sent to the Sheriff’s Office at [email protected].
Telephone comments are limited to 5 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with the NJSACOP standards. A copy of the standards are available for inspection at the Salem County Sheriff’s Office, 94 Market Street, Salem, NJ 08079. Please contact Sheriff’s Officer Shaun Lyons at (856)935-7510 ext. 8211 for more information.
