BARNEGAT – Recently, the Barnegat Township Police Department was awarded Law Enforcement Accreditation by CALEA for the third time. BTPD remains the only CALEA accredited agency in Ocean County and one of only eight CALEA accredited municipal police departments in the State of New Jersey. BTPD has been accredited by CALEA since 2011.

CALEA accreditation is an incredibly difficult standard to achieve and is only made possible through the extreme competence and professionalism of our officers.

The department shares a special thanks to the accreditation team of Lieutenant Jeff Ryan and Ptl. Sarah Girgenti for their outstanding work proving compliance with hundreds of professional standards and best practices.
