Lodi Police has been certified by the New Jersey Association of Chiefs of Police as an Officially Accredited Agency
The Lodi Police Department is proud to announce that it has been officially certified by the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police as an Accredited police agency. 470 police agencies are eligible to seek accreditation, however, only approximately 140 have gone through this rigorous process.
Research shows that accredited agencies have 11 percent fewer police professional liability claims, 18 percent fewer worker compensation claims and 31 percent fewer auto liability claims. They also received substantial insurance premium discounts. Accredited agencies are better able to defend against lawsuits and citizens’ complaints, and provide objective evidence of the agency’s commitment to excellence in leadership, resource management and service delivery.
There are 105 standards that need to be met on a national standard to become accredited. The Lodi Police Department has accomplished this by the hard work and dedication of it’s members, its Accreditation Manager Capt. Joseph Quatrone, and Chief of Police Vincent Quatrone. This accreditation signifies that the Lodi Police Department employs the latest technology, follows the rules & regulations set forth by the Chief of Police as well as the N.J. Attorney General guidelines and laws of N.J.
