Atlantic City Officials Complete Mandatory Ethics TrainingLast Edited:
Officials with the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA) have concluded their mandatory ethics training in Atlantic City.
On Wednesday, February 13th, officials with the DCA and City of Atlantic City announced that nearly all of the City’s approximately 900 employees, including elected officials, police officers, and firefighters, have completed mandatory local government ethics training.
This marks the first time mandatory ethics training has occurred across city departments and offices in at least a quarter century.
Lt. Governor Sheila Oliver says important decisions are made by City employees on behalf of the residents they serve every day and they deserve a workforce that is informed of the law and has their best interest in mind.
The ethics training covered the local government ethics law in New Jersey, the local government ethics administrative code, the criminal code related to government ethics, financial disclosure statements, and real-life examples.
The training also addressed Atlantic City’s history of elected officials and City employees who have been criminally prosecuted for corruption.
