SHOUT OUTS: Police Chiefs Bryan Gurney of Ramsey, Kenneth Ehrenberg of Paramus and John Ward of Ridgewood were among 33 police executives awarded certification by the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police through the Accredited Chief/Command Executive (ACE) Program.
“The NJSACOP ACE Program is a revisiting of the former Certified Chief Law Enforcement Executive Program (CCLEEP) with a new lean towards accrediting the individual police leader and assuring that experience, formal education and management training, continuing education, and collaboration are formally assessed against a recommended standard,” the association said.
“The goal is to give surety of merit in our state association’s formal gauging of effective police leadership through a model of peer review,” said NJSAOP, which promotes professional competence, continued education and career development among all members of law enforcement — and particularly among the highest-ranking officers.
“The NJSACOP ACE Certification Program directly encourages New Jersey’s law enforcement executives to attain sanctioned benchmarks in pursuit of a recommended standard for police leadership that are measurable and attainable.
“By offering proof of these standards to NJSACOP Assessors, individual police leaders can attain NJSACOP Accredited Chief/Command Executive (ACE) Certification Status,” the association said.
