The North Plainfield Police Department is Somerset County's first Accredited Agency. We earned that coveted status in December of 2006. Agencies must be Re-Accredited every 3 years. We have continued our success receiving Re-Accreditation, December 2009 and December 2012. We are in the process for this December 2015.

Accred

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

MISSION STATEMENT:

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 your immigration status, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.” In many communities across New Jersey, the relationship between members of the community and law enforcement is strained. Our mission as police officers is to prevent and solve crimes. That goal would be virtually impossible to do effectively if witnesses or victims had some reluctance to come forward. We have no concern about a person's immigration status and we do not ask that question of a victim or witness. It is imperative that law enforcement maintain the trust and support of the people 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.

It is truly an honor and privilege to serve as Chief of Police for North Plainfield. Our Borough is unique with its diverse population and the police department is comprised of some of the finest people in law enforcement. My goals and objectives are quite simple; I want to make North Plainfield the safest place to live, work, play and visit. I thank Mayor Michael Giordano, Jr. for having the confidence and trust in me to do this job and I pledge to do my best in serving the residents of North Plainfield, its government, and the police department.

I am always available to any person or group that would like to meet or talk with me. The people and civic groups I meet with are all committed to improving the relationship with our police officers. “When community leaders collaborate and understand the role of police in certain situations and there is a belief that the police will conduct a proper and transparent investigation into the events or actions of an officer, all of us will benefit.” Peaceful discussions and debate often lead to policy changes. Policing needs to reflect the necessities of their community. I hope you find our web presence useful and informative.

Sincerely,

William G. Parenti
