About JCPD Community Programs:

- The MARRC (Mentoring and Restoring Relationships with Cops) Initiative was developed as a community service activity for the students in the CHOICES (Choosing Honor, Opportunity, Integrity, Character, Excellence and Service) Program, to provide an opportunity to meet and correspond with law enforcement officers. CHOICES is a specialized program for students demonstrating challenging behaviors, located in eleven schools throughout the district, ranging from primary through middle school grades.  Click here for more information.
The MARRC Initiative is dedicated to the memory of Detective MarcAnthony DiNardo, of the JCPD Emergency Services Unit (E.O.W. 7/21/09).
Coffee with a Cop

- Joins us for some coffee and conversation at our next Coffee with a Cop event.  

- Breakfast with a Cop - In this program, our officers visit different public grammar schools where the officers and students interact in a cafeteria style environment and tackle issues of the day.

- The Jersey City Police Chaplain program was established in September 2017 to use local clergy members to assist residents who experience violence and other difficult situations. In addition to providing comfort and support, the chaplains will serve as a liaison to social services and other resources that an individual or family may need during a time of loss or violence.
The Chaplain program is a joint initiative of the Mayor’s Office, the Department of Public Safety, and the Department of Health & Human Services. The Chaplains will be called by the Jersey City Police Department. The program uses ministers from a variety of faith traditions, who are rooted in Jersey City and are trained for this kind of community care. The program is supported by a $10,000 grant from the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office.
