Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office scheduled for an on-site assessment; public comments welcomed April 26

The Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of its program to achieve accreditation by verifying that it meets recognized professional best practices.

Administered by the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police, the accreditation program requires agencies to comply with best practice standards in five basic areas: the administrative function, the personnel function, the operations function, the investigative function, and the arrestee/detainee function.

Agency employees and the public are invited to offer comments by calling 732-256-0055 on April 26 from 10-11 a.m. Comments will be taken by the Assessment Team. Emailed comments can be sent to the Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office at Accreditation@co.middlesex.nj.us.

Telephone comments are limited to 5 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with the NJSACOP standards.

A copy of the standards is available for inspection at the Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office, 701 Livingston Ave, New Brunswick. Contact Sgt. Yvonne Zirrith at 732-745-3801 for more information.

Anyone wishing to submit written comments about the Middlesex County Sheriff Office’s ability to comply with the standards for accreditation, may send them by email to Harry J. Delgado, Ed.S, Accreditation Program director, at hdelgado@njsacop.org; or write to the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police, Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission at 751 Route 73 North, Suite 12, Marlton 08053.
