The Newark Police Division (NPD) is committed to transparency in its procedures and performance and seeks opportunities to engage with the community all while holding officers, supervisors, and administrators accountable for their conduct and performance. Policies have been posted that guide the conduct of all police personnel. Additionally, it is the goal of the Newark Police Division to foster a true collaborative partnership through positive engagements and build public trust between the Division and the community and to promote safe communities by reducing crime, particularly violence. To achieve these goals, the Newark Police Division and its members shall approach all interactions with the public as opportunities to enhance the perception of law enforcement and build upon public trust. The NPD will fight crime more effectively as it improves training, increases supervision, and streamlines the disciplinary process.
