“We are privileged to maintain compliance with the NJSACOP standards, whose principles have become the model of excellence in police work,” stated Prosecutor Charles Fiore.
As part of this final on-site assessment, employees and members of the general public are invited to provide comments to the assessment team. They may do so by telephone or e-mail. The public may call 856-384-5559 on Sunday, Nov. 11th between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. E-mail comments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Telephone comments should be limited to five minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with NJSACOP standards. A copy of the standards is available for inspection at the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office, 70 Hunter St., Woodbury NJ. For additional information on the accreditation and assessment process, contact Sgt. Stacie Lick at 856-384-5608.

“Compliance with the 101 standards required by the NJSACOP assures accountability, transparency and confidence in the operations and response efforts of the members of the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office,” Prosecutor Fiore said.
Accreditation Program Manager for the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police is Harry J. Delgado. ”The assessment team is composed of law enforcement practitioners from similar New Jersey law enforcement agencies,” Delgado said. “The assessors will review written materials, interview agency members and visit offices and other places where compliance with the standards can be observed. Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they will report to the full Commission, which will then decide if the agency is to be granted accredited status.”
Accreditation is valid for three years, during which time the agency must submit annual reports attesting to their continued compliance with those standards under which it was initially accredited. The GCPO received its initial accreditation in 2013, and successfully completed its first re-accreditation in 2015.
