The Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office seeks accreditation from the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police. A team of assessors will be on-site Thursday, January 5, 2023, to examine all aspects of the Prosecutor's Office policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services.

"Verification by the team that the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office meets the Commission's "best practice" standards is part of a voluntary process to achieve accreditation, a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence," Prosecutor Williams said.

As part of this final on-site assessment, employees and members of the general public are invited to provide comments to the assessment team. They may do so by telephone or email.

The public may call 609-909-7733 on Thursday, January 6, 2023, between the hours of 10:00 AM and 11:00 AM.

Email comments can be sent to Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office at Telephone comments are limited to 5 minutes and must address the agency's ability to comply with the NJSACOP standards.

A copy of the standards is available for inspection.

Atlantic County officials aid, please get in touch with Agent Mark Cooker at 609-909-7881.

Administered by the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police, the accreditation program requires agencies to comply with best practice standards in five basic areas: the administrative function, the personnel function, the operations function, the investigative function, and the arrestee/detainee function.

Anyone wishing to offer written comments about the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office's ability to comply with the standards for accreditation is requested to email the Accreditation Program Director at or write the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police, Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission at 751 Route 73 North, Suite 12 Marlton, N.J. 08053.
