How Do You Think the Morris Prosecutor's Office is Doing?
A team of assessors from the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police will arrive on Sunday, Dec. 9, to examine all aspects of Morris County Prosecutor’s Office policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services. And citizens get to be part of the process.
“I am extremely proud of the commitment of all members of the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office staff who have been working diligently toward this accreditation process which has been managed by Executive Capt. Richard A. Rose," said Morris County Prosecutor Robert A. Bianchi. "This worthy project, which is not all that common amongst prosecutor’s offices in New Jersey, demonstrates this administration’s commitment to achieving excellence and further demonstrates our collective commitment to the 'best practices model' outlined in the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police model.
"The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office must comply with 112 standards in order to achieve accredited status. Accreditation results in greater accountability within the agency, reduced risk and liability exposure, stronger defense against civil lawsuits, increased community advocacy and more confidence in the office’s ability to operate efficiently and respond to community needs. We welcome the opportunity for the practices of our office to be evaluated.”
As part of the on-site assessment, office employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments by calling 973-285-6272 on Monday, Dec. 10, from 9-11 a.m.
