Working Towards National Accreditation
The Police Department is working towards National Accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). CALEA provides credentialing services for law enforcement agencies, public safety communications agencies and public safety training academies. CALEA accreditation signifies that an agency has met specific standards of excellence and operates according to norms established by practitioners in the public safety field.
The accreditation process is a management model and a blueprint for self-improvement, which strengthens accountability within the agency and to the community it serves. The Police Department recieved accreditation in March of 2013.
