Sheriff’s Office Earns Accreditation

BC_SheriffThe Bergen County Sheriff’s Office was unanimously granted re-accreditation from the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police through its New Jersey Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission.

“I want to congratulate the men and women of the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office on this great accomplishment, and in particular, the Accreditation Unit in preparing for this assessment,” Sheriff Michael Saudino said.  “Accreditation ensures that we, as an organization, are adhering to the highest standards of professionalism and public service.”

An assessment team visited the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office for a two-day on-site assessment in October and subsequently recommended accreditation to the commission. The process requires an in-depth review of every aspect of the agency’s organization, management, operations and administration. To achieve accreditation, the agency is required to comply with best practice standards in four areas: policy and procedures, administration, operations, and support services.  In the report, the NJSACOP noted the office’s “well-organized” internal affairs function, as well as the “robust field training officer program.”

“It goes to show that the policies and procedures we have implemented here have followed the core functions of the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office,” said Saudino.

The Bergen County Sheriff’s Office is the largest law enforcement agency in Bergen County with a staff of 500 that augments municipal police departments and safeguards county-based judicial proceedings.
