The North Plainfield Police Department is Somerset County's first Accredited Agency.
Accreditation demonstrates the professional achievements of the men and women of this Department. This recognition further demonstrates our collective dedication to excellence in professional Law Enforcement. By voluntarily meeting New Jersey Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission standards, the North Plainfield Police Department has shown itself willing to be held to a higher level of professionalism, building trust between the Department and the citizens it serves
My top priority is to provide equal opportunity policing for everyone that lives, works or passes through North Plainfield. By this I mean Law Enforcement Services will be fair, honest, and without bias. With the help of government and the members of the Police Department, I hope to build a mutual respect with all of our residents and business people. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani once said, “A town in which an increasing number of people respect and are willing to accommodate the rights of others is a community that is moving in a progressive direction”. My goal is to move the Police Department in a progressive direction.
The North Plainfield Police are trying to instill our belief in community policing and establish a confidence that “we as police officers, care more about your well-being than immigration status”. Our mission as police officers is to prevent and solve crimes. That goal would be virtually impossible to do effectively if witnesses and victims, no matter what their residency status, had some reluctance to come forward for fear of being deported. We have no concern about a person's immigration status and don't ask. It is imperative that law enforcement maintain the trust and support of the residents they serve.
A high priority is placed on initial screening and training of our employees. A continuing in-service training program is designed to keep us current with modern law enforcement practices. We aim to combine high personal ethics, quality training, and perseverance to provide the best possible service to the people of North Plainfield.
