To effectively protect the residents of our state, we must ensure that there is trust between law enforcement and the communities we serve. We are redoubling our efforts to strengthen that trust, building on the efforts of this and prior administrations. We will work closely with community organizations, establishing partnerships that help law enforcement more effectively serve their residents. And we will employ the New Jersey Attorney General’s unique authority to issue statewide policy directives that apply to the New Jersey’s 38,000 law enforcement officers and 1,000 prosecutors to promote professionalism, accountability, and transparency. In doing so, we will create an environment in which our dedicated law enforcement officers can do what they do best: keep our residents safe.
