The Union County Board of Chose Freeholders congratulates Union County Sheriff Joseph Cryan and Sgt. Patrick Hora as they accept the Certificate of Re-Accreditation from Harry Delgado of the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police (NJACOP) during the Freeholders meeting in Elizabeth.

The re-accreditation signifies the Sheriff’s Office has successfully met a body of internationally recognized professional standards. 

Accredited status represents a significant professional achievement. The Sheriff’s Office has now achieved re-accreditation twice. Of the nearly 600 law enforcement agencies in New Jersey, less than one percent obtains re-accreditation for a second time.

Delgado of the NJACOP praised the Sheriff’s Office for its professionalism and the implementation of policies and procedures that are conceptually sound and operationally effective.
