MCPO Hosts Law Symposium & Memorandum of Agreement Signing w/ Schools

Morris County, NJ - On January 20, 2023, Morris County Law Enforcement and Morris County Executive County Superintendent Dr. Nancy Gartenberg joined forces to host a Signing and Law Day Symposium at the Morris County Police Safety Academy. The event brought together educational and law enforcement officials to review the Uniform State Memorandum of Agreement and address pressing issues of school safety and security.

The symposium featured presentations from various organizations, including the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Juvenile and Homeland Security Units, Morris County Sheriff’s Office, New Jersey State Police, and New Jersey Department of Education School Preparedness and Emergency Planning Unit. These community stakeholders came together to open up a dialogue about what is expected when it comes to school safety and security.

During the event, a range of topics was discussed, including school drills, campus mapping, threat assessments, reporting guidelines, Juvenile Justice Reform, mental health issues, and more. The symposium aimed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the steps that are taken to ensure the safety and security of students and staff in Morris County schools.

Prosecutor Carroll said,Law enforcement and educational officials together reaffirm their commitment to the safety of our students and educators through preparedness and collaboration. In order for our schools to continue to serve as environments of learning and nurturing, first and foremost, they must be safe. I’m proud to say that the school administrators and law enforcement professionals in Morris County share this same goal.
