Evesham Township Police Department has once again been recognized as one of the best departments in the country.

An assessment by the Commission on Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA), an agency that monitors the standards of public safety across the country, ranked the department in the top 1 percent of the country’s police departments.

“This is a tremendous accomplishment by our entire police department,” said Chief Christopher Chew. “Being reaccredited by CALEA reaffirms the professionalism and standard of excellence throughout our entire organization.”

The CALEA visited Evesham in August for an on-site assessment that included interviews with the department staff, elected officials and community members. The department was awarded its accreditation after a hearing in November.

Only 1 percent of the country’s police departments have achieved accreditation, and Evesham is one of only nine New Jersey departments to be recognized.
