Morristown, N.J. (October 11, 2017) – "The College of Saint Elizabeth is an extremely reputable, convenient, law-enforcement friendly and cost effective institution," says Mark DiCarlo, chief of police for Morris Township Police Department.
In 2015, DiCarlo earned his master's degree in justice administration and public service at CSE. This September, he was promoted to chief of police for Morris Township Police Department and firmly believes his CSE education was vital to this achievement.
"Law Enforcement is extremely competitive these days and opportunities for advancement are even more competitive," says DiCarlo. "This job has changed dramatically over the years and is more complex and technological. A great, current education is imperative."
"As a graduate student, Mark was always leading the way in our critical thinking exercises and practical application of criminal justice case studies," says Dr. Jim Ford, an associate criminal justice professor at CSE and former lieutenant for the Chatham Township Police Department.
As the 12th chief of police for Morris Township, DiCarlo will lead the police force in serving the public, elected officials and his co-workers.
During his swearing-in ceremony, DiCarlo pledged to make the Morris Township Police Department even more inclusive.
"Our community is diverse and I will continue to improve the diversity in our police department," said DiCarlo. "I truly believe that public trust is gained when the police force mirrors the diversity of the community which it serves."
