A Message From Our President
It is my privilege to serve as the 2017 President of the Monmouth County Police Chiefs’ Association. I am proud of the many achievements of our organization and the cooperation that exists among our member departments. Because of this cooperation, we are able to provide outstanding services to the communities we serve.
The Monmouth County Police Chiefs’ Association was established on January 23, 1940 and incorporated on March 14, 1940. The Associations goal was to standardize police procedures in Monmouth County and to foster inter-departmental collaboration. During the years that the organization has been in existence, we have all experienced the benefits of this alliance. Most notably, the residents of the communities we serve have enjoyed improved services and a safer environment.
Ours is an organization committed to providing the best training for the law enforcement personnel in our departments and to instill in them the professionalism and the pride that are important components of successful policing. We have been successful in maintaining these goals through our involvement with the Monmouth County Police Academy, which utilizes instructors from our departments as well as the Prosecutors Office and the Sheriff’s Department. Graduates of the Academy are trained to observe the standards that have been developed by these three organizations.
Monmouth County Police Departments have a positive reputation among the law enforcement agencies in New Jersey. We maintain an ongoing program of training for our officers and we are at the forefront in establishing new and improved services for the communities we are sworn to protect. Our commitment is the prevention of crime and the protection of the residents we serve. The Monmouth County Police Chiefs’ Association plays a vital role in making this possible.
