Police Department Accreditation


The Wharton Police Department  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 862-397-2705 on Sunday, September 25, 2016 between the hours of 09:00 am and 11:00 am.  Comments will be taken by the   Assessment Team.  Email comments can be sent to the police department at whamilton@whartonpd.org

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 Wharton Police Department , 10 Robert St, Wharton, NJ 07885. Please contact Sergeant William Hamilton at 862-397-2701 for more information.

Anyone wishing to submit written comments about the Wharton Police Department’s ability to comply with the standards for accreditation may send them by email to Harry J Delgado, Ed.S Accreditation Program Manager, hdelgado@njsacop.org, by phone 856.334.8943, or write to the New Jersey State Association of Chief’s of Police, Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission at 751 Route 73 North, Suite 12, Marlton, N.J. 08053.
