The Morris County Sheriff’s Office is scheduled for a site-based assessment as part of a program to achieve accreditation by verifying it meets professional standards.
Administered by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA®), the accreditation program requires agencies to comply with state-of-the-art standards in four basic areas: policy and procedures, administration, operations, and support services.
As part of the assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session on October 22, 2019 at 3 pm. The session will be conducted in the Freeholder Public Meeting Room located on the Fifth Floor of the County of Morris Administration & Records Building, 10 Court Street, Morristown, New Jersey, 07960.
Agency employees and the public are also invited to offer comments by calling 973-285-6053 on October 22, 2019 between the hours of 10 am and 12 pm. Comments will be taken by the Assessment Team.
Telephone comments as well as appearances at the public information session are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with CALEA’s standards. A copy of the Standards is available at the main Sheriff’s Office located in the Morris County Courthouse, 56 Washington Street, Morristown, New Jersey, 07960. Local contact is Accreditation Manager Detective/Captain Denise Thornton at 973-285-6675.
Anyone wishing to submit written comments about the Morris County Sheriff’s Office’s ability to comply with the standards for accreditation may send them to the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement, Inc. (CALEA), 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320, Gainesville, Virginia, 20155 or email [email protected]
