Glendale police entering re-accreditation process

Posted

A team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) will be conducting an on-site (virtual) assessment of the Glendale Police Department beginning on Monday, April 4.

This examination will include an assessment of the department’s policies, procedures, management, operations and support services. It’s part of a voluntary process to gain accreditation, a highly prized recognition of professional excellence in the field of law enforcement.

The goal of the assessment is to demonstrate that the Glendale Police Department is in compliance with the nationally accepted professional standards CALEA establishes. GPD was first accredited in 2000, and the department’s accredited status was reaffirmed in the years 2003, 2006, 2009, 2012, 2015 and 2018.

Additional information on the accreditation process is available at calea.org.

As part of the on-site assessment, community members and agency employees are invited to offer comments during a public call-in session. Anyone who wishes to participate can speak directly to an assessor by calling in from 1 to 3 p.m. Tuesday, April 5. The number to call is 817-656-4196.

Comments provided during the public call-in session are limited to 10 minutes, and must address the agency’s ability to comply with CALEA standards. Anyone who cannot participate in the public call-in session may write to the assessors.

Letters may be addressed to: Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc, 10302 Eaton Place, Suite 100, Fairfax, Virginia 22030-2201.
