Brigantine’s Police Department has been reaccredited after a review earlier this year by the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police.

Accreditation means the department’s policies and procedures comply with a set of standards for effectiveness and professionalism. The program is overseen by the NJSACOP and the New Jersey Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission.

Those standards cover the full range of department operations, including policy and procedures, administration, operations and support services.

The department was first accredited in 2008 and underwent a review in February that included input from employees and the general public.

Brigantine received reaccreditation through a unanimous vote by the NJSACOP commission.
