The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of a program to achieve accreditation by verifying it meets professional standards.

Administered by the New Jersey Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission in conjunction with the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police, the accreditation program requires agencies to comply with standards in four basic areas that represent the best practices in Law Enforcement.

The standards address policy and procedures, administration, operations and support services.

Office employees and the public are also invited to offer comments by calling 973-285-6272 on Monday, Dec. 10.  The accreditation assessors assigned to the on-site assessment will take phone calls from the public between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.

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