Police department awarded reaccreditation for 7th time

POSTED: March 27, 2013 11:49 p.m.

The Gainesville Police Department announced it has received a three-year reaccreditation by the Commission for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc.

CALEA voted unanimously last Saturday in Charleston, S.C., to reaccredit the department for the seventh time overall.

Reaccreditation is for three years and the department is required to maintain continuous compliance and demonstrate a commitment to professional excellence in policy and procedure during that period.

“I was extremely proud and humbled to testify in front of the commission regarding our agency’s professionalism, excellence and community partnership,” Gainesville Police Chief Brian Kelly said.

The purpose of CALEA’s Accreditation Programs is to improve the delivery of public safety services, primarily by maintaining a body of standards, developed by public safety practitioners, covering a wide range of up-to-date public safety initiatives; establishing and administering an accreditation process; and recognizing professional excellence.
