Accreditation Assessment Team Invites Public Comment
The Annapolis Police Department is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of a program to achieve re-accreditation by verifying it meets professional standards.
Administered by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA®), the accreditation program requires agencies to comply with state-of-the-art standards in four basic areas: Policy and Procedures, Administration, Operations, and Support Services. The Annapolis Police Department was first accredited by CALEA® in 2004.
As part of this on-site assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments. A public information session will be held as follows:
