PPD on-site assessment to achieve re-accreditation

PLAINFIELD —  

The Plainfield Police Department is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of a program to achieve re-accreditation by verifying that 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 re-accreditation assessment will be Dec. 10-13. The department was originally accredited in March, 1997. Of CALEA’s 480 standards, the Plainfield Police Department will attempt to show compliance with 382 applicable standards.

As part of the on-site assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments to the assessors at a public information session at 5:30 p.m. Dec. 12 in the Plainfield Town Court at the Plainfield Police Headquarters, 1075 W. Main St., Plainfield. Comments may also be made by calling 372-9581 from 1 to 3 p.m. Dec. 11.

Telephone comments 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 Plainfield Police Department by contacting Lt. Jill Lees.

Those wishing to submit written comments about the Plainfield Police Department’s ability to comply with the standards for accreditation may send them to the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc., (CALEA), 13575 Heathcote Blvd., Suite 330, Gainesville, VA 20155.
