Cary Police Department Accreditation Public Notice
The Town of Cary Police Department is scheduled for an onsite assessment as part of a program to renew national accreditation by verifying compliance with professional standards. The department will be evaluated under the CALEA Advanced Law Enforcement Program.
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 areas: policy and procedures, administration, operations and support services.
As part of the onsite assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session on July 31, 2019 at 6 p.m. The session will be conducted at Cary Town Council Chambers, 316 N. Academy Street, Cary, North Carolina.
Agency employees and the public are also invited to offer comments by calling (919) 653-7101 on July 31 from 2-4 p.m. Calls will be taken by the Assessment Team.
Telephone comments as well as appearances at the public information session are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with CALEA’s standards. A copy of the standards is available for review at the Town of Cary Police Department, 120 Wilkinson Avenue, Cary. The local contact is Accreditation Manager Kathleen Sanfratello, (919) 462-3813.
Anyone wishing to submit written comments about the Cary Police Department’s ability to comply with the standards for accreditation may send them to the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement, INC. (CALEA), 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320, Gainesville, Virginia, 20155 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Cary Police Department is accredited through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA). Since the first CALEA Accreditation Award was granted, the program has become the primary method for an agency to voluntarily demonstrate their commitment to excellence in law enforcement. The standards upon which the Law Enforcement Accreditation Program is based reflect the current thinking and experience of law enforcement practitioners and researchers. Major law enforcement associations, leading educational and training institutions, governmental agencies, as well as law enforcement executives internationally, acknowledge CALEA's Standards for Law Enforcement Agencies and its Accreditation Programs as benchmarks for professional law enforcement agencies.
The Cary Police Department has been accredited since 1992. In addition to being re-accredited, the department has also earned CALEA's Accreditation with Excellence award. The intent of this award is to provide agencies an opportunity to be further recognized for the effective use of accreditation as a model for enhanced public safety service delivery. The new award, entitled Accreditation with Excellence, is open to all agencies enrolled in any accreditation program at any level.
