Old Bridge Police Department seeks public comments during re-accreditation process


The Old Bridge Police Department is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of its program to achieve re-accreditation by verifying that it meets recognized professional best practices.

Administered by the N.J. State Association of Chiefs of Police (NJSACOP), the accreditation program requires agencies to comply with best practice standards in five basic areas: administrative, personnel, operations, investigative and arrestee/detainee functions.

Agency employees and the public are invited to offer comments from 9-11 a.m. April 23 by calling 73-721-5600, ext. 7976 or by emailing the department at jmandola@oldbridge.com.

Telephone comments are limited to five minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with the NJSACOP standards. A copy of the standards is available at the Old Bridge Police Department, 1 Old Bridge Plaza.

For more information, contact Capt. Joseph Mandola at 732-721-5600, ext. 3411.

For comments related to the police department’s ability to comply with the standards for accreditation, email hdelgado@njsacop.org or write to NJSACOP, Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission, 751 Route 73 North, Suite 12, Marlton 08053.
