The Union City Police Department is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of its program to achieve accreditation by verifying that it meets recognized professional best practices.

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.

Agency employees and the public are invited to offer comments by calling 201-348-5784 on Sunday, January 29, 2017 between the hours of 09:00 am and 11:00 am. Comments will be taken by the Assessment Team. Email comments can be sent to the police department at [email protected].

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 at the Union City Police Department 3715 Palisade Ave, Union City NJ 07087 or can be downloaded from

Please contact Captain Nichelle Luster at 201-348-5780 for more information.
