About the Division:

 The training of our personnel is one of the most important tasks of the Secaucus Police Department.  The Training Coordinator is responsible for the coordination of all training (internal and external) including the distribution of training material and available course listings and preparation of training course registrations. The Training Coordinator is also responsible for coordinating the inspection of all equipment and supplies required to accomplish the training function, including preparation of a recommended training budget and requests for acquisition of new or depleted supplies and equipment.

The Secaucus Police Department is an accredited agency by the NJSACOP.  The Accreditation Manager is assigned to the office of the Chief of Police and has staff and functional authority over all employees of this department in matters pertaining to accreditation, the accreditation process, and subsequent reaccreditation activities. Achieving accreditation involved various studies and surveys to assess a wide range of existing policies, practices, and procedures. Full cooperation with these surveys was mandatory and binding upon all employees of this agency.

It is the policy of the Secaucus Police Department to ensure that the release of information to the public and the media is carefully coordinated and controlled to avoid confusion and to promote the department in a positive manner.  The Public Information Officer prepares and distributes news releases from the department.  Responsibilities of the Public Information Officer include the following:  preparing and distributing daily, weekly and special news releases; assisting media coverage of “routine” and “emergency” situations; arranging and assisting at media briefings; coordinating the release of information regarding confidential investigations and operations.
