Nj Memorandum Of Agreement 2019

The annual review of the MOA provides an opportunity for school and law enforcement officers to reaffirm their commitment to cooperation as partners, discuss the effectiveness of current processes, and revise procedures if necessary. It is important that school officials are familiar with this agreement and know how it supports safe learning environments. The 2019 MOA, approved by the Attorney General and the Commissioner of Education, is a revision of the 2015 version. Previous revisions were also approved in 1992, 1999, 2007 and 2011.
