Accreditation is “a remarkably prized recognition of legislation enforcement experienced excellence,” according to Main Thomas Dellane.
An on-web-site assessment – through the New Jersey Legislation Enforcement Accreditation Commission’s voluntary software, administered by the New Jersey Point out Association of Chiefs of Law enforcement – was not probable due to COVID-19, but two assessors ended up assigned. The system calls for law enforcement departments to meet “best practices” in legislation enforcement.
