  STAFFORD – The Stafford Township Police Department has announced that their Communications Division has been awarded the “Public Safety Communications Accreditation” by the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police (NJSACOP).

  Now joining an exclusive group of departments across the country, the Stafford Township Police Department is the second department in New Jersey to receive this title for meeting the standard of excellence in public safety.

  “Accreditation results in greater accountability within the agency, reduced risk and liability exposure, stronger defense against civil lawsuits, and an increased confidence in our agency’s dispatch center to operate efficiently and respond to community needs,” the department said in a statement.

  Chief Thomas Dellane and Accreditation Manager Thomas Preiser acknowledge Communications Supervisor Tim Cunningham and all members of the Stafford Township Police Department for their professionalism and hard work in earning this achievement.

  “We would like to extend a special thank you to retired Chief Harry Delgado of the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police for presenting us with this prestigious award at the Town Council Meeting on October 26. We’d also like to thank the Mayor and Council, as well as our amazing Stafford Township community for your continued support!”
