Readington Township has updated the ordinance that establishes rules and regulation for the police department. The ordinance provides for a line of authority relating to the police function and for the adopting and promulgation by the appropriate authority of rules and regulations for the government of the force and the discipline of its members.
Specifics of day-to-day police operations belong in department policies and procedures. In addition, the adoption of rules and regulations is not the responsibility of the chief of police, but instead it is the responsibility of the Appropriate Authority within the municipality. Issuing policies and procedures, orders and directives that govern the day-to-day operation of the police department is, however, the responsibility of the chief. The rules and regulations can be found below.
