Seaside Heights Police Department


The Seaside Heights Police Department is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of its program to achieve accreditation by verifying that it meets recognized professional best practices.

Administered by the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police (NJSACOP), the accreditation program requires agencies to comply with best practice standards in five basic areas: the administrative function, the personnel function, the operations function, the investigative function, and the arrestee/detainee function.

Agency employees and the public are invited to offer comments by calling 732-833-5050 on Monday, October 22, 2018 between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.  Comments will be taken by the Assessment Team.  Email comments can be sent to Investigator Gerald Ihnken, Seaside Heights Police Accreditation Manager, at g.ihnken.shpd@gmail.com

Telephone comments are limited to 5 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with the NJSACOP standards.  A copy of the standards is available for inspection at the Seaside Heights Police Department, 116 Sherman Ave., Seaside Heights, N.J. 08751.  Please contact Investigator Gerald Ihnken at 732-212-6843 for more information.
