Certification Program
Recognizing Professionalism and Excellence in
New Jersey Law Enforcement Executives


Program Overview

This is a voluntary certification effort established by the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police (NJSACOP). The program is designed to elevate the professional standards and individual performance of law enforcement executives in the State of New Jersey.

The Program is administered by the NJSACOP Certification Committee, a semiautonomous structure within the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police.

Certified Chief Law Enforcement Executive (CCLEE)
Certified-Eligible Law Enforcement Executive (C-ELEE)
Certified Chief Law Enforcement Executive-Advanced (CCLEE-A)

The primary credential awarded under the program is the Certified Chief Law Enforcement Executive (CCLEE). Currently active sworn law enforcement officers who are the chief executives of a qualified law enforcement agency operating in the State of New Jersey (local, county, state or federal) and are otherwise eligible under the program guidelines are eligible to apply for this credential. Other sworn law enforcement personnel who are not yet the head of a law enforcement agency but who are otherwise eligible under the program guidelines may apply for the Certified-Eligible Law Enforcement Executive (C-ELEE) credential.

The requirements for qualification for the CCLEE and the C-ELEE credential are the same in all respects, except that only those who currently serve as the chief executive of a qualifying law enforcement agency may receive the CCLEE designation. Any law enforcement officer holding a currently valid C-ELEE that is elevated to chief executive of a qualifying law enforcement agency will be awareded the CCLEE credential by the Certification Committee.

Chiefs of Police that have retired from active service having attained and maintained the CCLEE designation may retain their Certified status following retirement. Retired Certified Chiefs must meet the same requirements as all other Certified law enforcement executives to maintain their status and to qualify for Re-Certification. The CCLEE designation may not be attained following retirement.

The Certified Chief Law Enforcement Executive-Advanced designation is available to any Chief of Police (whether or not previously certified under this program). The major distinguishing feature of the Advanced designation is the specific educational and professional training requirement. Chiefs of Police that received the CCLEE-A designation are eligible to apply for participation in the NJSACOP Police Management Consultant Program.
