Members of the community will have a chance to share their thoughts on all aspects of the South Brunswick Police Department as they seek National Accreditation this month.
A team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) will be in South Brunswick from Oct. 20 to Oct. 23 exploring various aspects of the department's policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services, police said.
Verification by the commission's standards is part of a voluntary process that will grant initial national accreditation, which is a prized recognition that illustrates excellence and professionalism in law enforcement, according to police.
As a part of the process, both employees and residents of South Brunswick are welcomed to offer comments directly to assessors during a public information session on Oct. 21. The program will be held from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the main meeting room at the South Brunswick Municipal Building, located at 540 Ridge Road in Monmouth Junction.
Residents can also contact the assessors by phone on Oct. 21 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. 732-329-4000 ext. 7494, or write to CALEA at 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320, Gainesville, Virginia, 20155.
Anyone with questions about the accreditation process can contact the South Brunswick Police Department’s Accreditation Manager, Lt. Christopher Giampietro at 732-329-4000 ext. 7471.
