Fed monitor lauds NJSP

njsppatchThe racial profiling tag fixed on the New Jersey State Police can officially be removed following a federal monitor’s conclusion that the agency continues to properly train, supervise, inspect and audit the management of its troops.

With two-thirds of its force hired after the changes were first instituted, the reforms have become part of standard operating procedure, said Superintendent Colonel Rick Fuentes.

“The State Police continue to function as an organization that is able to… monitor its activities and adapt to changes in the legal and criminal justice environment,” the federal monitor’s report concludes.

The findings were boosted by the very first internal study of the State Police, which detailed the results of reforms created to eliminate racial profiling of motorists.
