ACTIVE CHIEFS ONLY:

New Chiefs Mentoring Program

 The beginning of any new Police Chief's administration can be crucial to achieving a successful transition and to building important relationships within the agency and community. New responsibilities as the leader can be overwhelming, confusing and frustrating, and newer Chiefs will often need technical assisstance and support.

For this reason, the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police has developed a New Police Chiefs Mentoring program (modeled after the program pioneered by the IACP). This program is designed to provide new Chiefs with leadership and policy guidance as they begin their tenure. Newer Chiefs are provided with access to seasoned Chiefs from similar sized agencies to learn how they achieved success and resolved similar problems and confronted similar challenges.
