NMPD Achieves Accreditation 
Chief Police Brian T. Clancy is proud to announce that the New Milford Police Department has achieved Police Agency Accreditation through the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (NJSACOP LEAP) on March 11, 2021.

Accreditation is a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence. It requires agencies to comply with best practice standards in five basic areas: administration, personnel, operations, investigation and arrestees. To receive accreditation status, The NMPD was required to meet or exceed the NJSACOP LEAP standards that reflect these professional best practices in policing.

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 agency’s ability to operate efficiently and respond to community needs. Chief Clancy made accrediting the New Milford Police Department a priority upon first being promoted to Chief in May of 2019.

New Milford Residents and Business Owners:

The New Milford Police Dept. will take police reports over the phone for certain types of non-emergency calls. The types of calls that our officers will take over the phone are those that do not require an on-scene investigation to be conducted, evidence collected, or otherwise require an officer to respond. If you have been a victim of fraud or other similar circumstance, you may be asked to email documents to the NMPD Detective Bureau at nmpddet. As always, if you have any type of emergency where you need a police, fire, or EMS response call 911. Thank you for your cooperation, Chief Brian T. Clancy

 The Hart Program
Prosecutor Grewal  has recently announced a new initiative called the HART program (Heroin Addiction Recovery Team), which is in partnership with CarePlus, the Lyndhurst, Paramus, and Mahwah Police Departments. This is a walk-in program for those seeking recovery from substance abuse, and those individuals will be connected to comprehensive care. Assessments are provided by CarePlus clinicians with specialties in mental health and substance abuse counseling and they will work to coordinate needed care with a provider,  which accepts that individual’s benefit coverage or has funding for those without insurance. Individuals may turn in drug paraphernalia without arrest, however individuals with warrants for their arrest will have to address those issues before being connected to services. The walk-in hours are Wednesday’s from 9a-5p. No appointment necessary, and you do not have to be a Bergen County resident to utilize this service. Transportation may be provided to treatment sites.
