(Dublin, OH) – The Dublin Division of Police has received its 8th Award for Law Enforcement Accreditation. Members of the City’s police force accepted the award at the Spring CALEA (Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies) conference in Reno, Nevada. Accreditation is awarded for a period of three years. The Dublin Division of Police is one of a relatively small number of agencies that have remained accredited continuously since 1990.
The agency was one of only a few at the conference to be awarded the CALEA Award of Excellence. This award is given to agencies that have shown “effective use of accreditation as a model for the delivery of enhanced public safety services and management professionalism.”
These awards are significant because they demonstrate the Division’s commitment to the highest professional standards, effective management and up-to-date training techniques.
The accreditation process is extensive. It assesses everything from sound policy, officer training, proper equipment, agency efficiency and fiscal responsibility. More information on the CALEA accreditation process is available online – http://www.calea.org/content/steps-accreditation-process
