COPS NOTEBOOK: Year-end musings

(Continued)

The accreditation will remain in place for the next five years.

In order to achieve accreditation, the department must meet or exceed over 150 standards for police work and law enforcement activities.

“You have to prove you have policies in place and prove you’ve maintained those polices and standards for the last five years,” DalPorto said.

Examiners conducting the re-accreditation take a long, hard look at such things as how officers work with crime victims, as well as the procedures that are involved in making arrests.

I’m told, there is even a standard and test for how the department deals with the media. 

All in all, not a bad way to start the holidays.
