December 4 - December 5

2019 Accreditation managers Conference

Training and Tracks

The 2019 Policing and Accreditation Conference will be held at Resorts Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey on December 4th and 5th, 2019.  The New Jersey Public Safety Accreditation Coalition will present a focus this year on Law Enforcement Mental health issues.

This is a timely and extremely necessary topic of our profession.  The presenters and accreditation classes will all be in relation to the topic.  Accreditation programs all include standards that involve; Early Warning System, Employee Assistance Program and Notification of on the job injury and death notification, among others, that relate to our topic and the need for clear and concise policy and accreditation adherence. 


This conference isn’t just about Accreditation.  There are a host of other unique training opportunities that police executives and supervisors will find interesting and quite informative.  Check out our Conference Brochure to learn more about the classes.  Students can attend any training class regardless of accreditation program.

 

When you attend our conference, we will help you apply the “theory” of any training to the practical, real-world work you will do as an accreditation manager. Our conference classes are both designed and taught by seasoned accreditation managers/assessors specifically, to meet your needs; in policy writing, proving compliance, facility inspection, PowerDMS and Standards, successfully navigating your “official” onsite assessment, and much more.
