In 2014, the Sea Isle City Police Department (SICPD) achieved accreditation with the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police (NJSACOP). This honor will put the SICPD in a class with the top 20% of law enforcement agencies in the Garden State.

To achieve accreditation, policies and procedures were implemented or modified to conform to 100 written standards, which have been recognized as being the best practices for law enforcement officers and their agencies.
