Public Invited to Submit Feedback on City Police Force to State Inspectors

A team from the NJ State Association of Chiefs of Police will be at the New Brunswick Police Department on Dec. 9 to evaluate the way the department is running.

Editor's note: A prior version of this story incorrectly stated the date in which the public is invited to submit feedback. Calls are to be accepted on Dec. 10.

The New Brunswick Police Department has announced that public comments about the city's law enforcement are welcome on Dec. 10 during an evaluation by the state Association of Chiefs of Police for the department's accreditation.

An assessment team from the association will be at the department "To examine all aspects of the New Brunswick Police Department’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services," according to a press release from the department.

During the assessment, the public may call (732) 745-5181 between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m to offer comments no longer than five minutes to the assessment team specifically about the department's "ability to comply with the NJSACOP standards."

To obtain a copy of the NJSACOP standards, contact Lt. Christopher Carroll at (732) 745-5200. They are also available on file at the New Brunswick Police Department, 25 Kirkpatrick St.

Written comments can be sent to the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police, Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission at One Greentree Centre, Suite 201, Marlton, N.J. 08053

The assessment is part of the Accreditation process for the police department, which is overseen by the association.

According to the release, “The assessment team is composed of law enforcement practitioners from similar New Jersey law enforcement agencies. The assessors will review written materials, interview agency members, and visit offices and other places where compliance with the standards can be observed. Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they will report to the full Commission, which will then decide if the agency is to be granted accredited status”.

December 9th is a sunday?? Tomorrow?? Does not seem designed or likely to get many citizens that are oppressed by this Police Force. Everyone is in church praying for the harrassed and the dead at those limited hours

I tried. It is impossible to get through to Carroll at the contact number that you give or to obtain the documents. It is articles like these that give the false impression to the public that something is really being done to address rogue and dangerous men acting as POLICE in New Brunswick City. This is more harmful than helpful
