The Franklin Borough Police Department proudly participates in the esteemed New Jersey Law Enforcement Accreditation Program, a progressive initiative designed to enhance the effectiveness and accountability of law enforcement agencies. Accreditation serves as a proven method to evaluate and elevate overall performance, rooted in the adoption of rigorous standards that delineate professional objectives with clarity. 

This voluntary program, developed by the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police and modeled after the esteemed CALEA national program, underscores our commitment to excellence in law enforcement. It necessitates adherence to a comprehensive set of professional standards tailored specifically for New Jersey agencies, fostering the adoption of best practices throughout the field.


Since its inaugural accreditation in 2021, our department has upheld these standards with dedication and diligence. Under the scrutiny of trained assessors from the New Jersey Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission (NJLEAC), our policies, procedures, management, operations, and support services were comprehensively evaluated against 112 stringent benchmarks.


The assessment, conducted by experienced law enforcement practitioners from across the state, encompassed meticulous review of written materials, thorough interviews, and on-site inspections. Accreditation status, granted for a period of three years, underscores our ongoing commitment to upholding these exacting standards. Annual reports and proofs of continued compliance are mandatory, ensuring accountability and transparency in our operations.


Achieving accredited status represents a momentous professional milestone, affirming the soundness and efficacy of our policies and procedures. It reflects our unwavering dedication to excellence and our steadfast commitment to serving and protecting the Franklin Borough community with the highest standards of professionalism and integrity.


In 2024, the Franklin Borough Police Department successfully completed its re-accreditation assessment. This milestone was marked by the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police (NJSACOP) Accreditation Commission's thorough on-site evaluation of our agency. Our command staff presented testimony before the commission, resulting in a unanimous vote to re-accredit the Franklin Borough Police Department.


Embarking on our third accreditation cycle, we are committed to elevating our service to the community even further. This ongoing process offers a valuable framework for assessing both the strengths and areas for improvement in our policies, procedures, and organizational structure. Through continuous self-evaluation, we aim to guide our officers and leadership in refining our practices and upholding our unwavering commitment to excellence.
