Accreditation Planning

An increasing number of law enforcement agencies are looking at the process of becoming an accredited agency, with vetted policies and procedures.  Accreditation is a way to benchmark an agency with hundreds of others and against national standards.  Having such vetted policies, procedures and training may help defend an agency in the event a lawsuit is filed.  The Commission on Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA), the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA), and a smaller group of state accreditation groups have worked to standardize policies and procedures to promote accepted and evaluated practices. 

Accreditation is an intensive process that often requires the assignment of a command officer to steer the agency through the process.  TRG can serve as that accreditation coordinator, or assist the agency in preparation and throughout the process.
