The Police Department is nationally accredited through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). CALEA accreditation is a long-term project that involves a top-to-bottom review of policies and procedures in order to demonstrate that the police department complies with national standards. The process included public input and ultimately, an on-site inspection by CALEA evaluators. The Police Department Participates in a yearly review process to maintain accreditation.
