CALEA Accreditation and GACP State Certification
The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) serves as the premier credentialing association for public safety agencies and provides accreditation services for law enforcement organizations, public safety communication centers, public safety training academies, and campus security agencies. The standards are promulgated by a board of 21 commissioners, representing a full spectrum of public safety leadership. The assessment process includes extensive self-assessment, annual remote web-based assessments, and quadrennial site-based assessments. Additionally, candidate agencies are presented to the Commission for final consideration and credentialing. CALEA Accreditation is a voluntary process and participating public safety agencies, by involvement, have demonstrated a commitment to professionalism. The program is intended to enhance organization service capacities and effectiveness, serve as a tool for policy decisions and management, promote transparency and community trust, and establish a platform for continuous review. CALEA Accreditation is the Gold Standard for Public Safety Agencies and represents a commitment to excellence. On Sunday, June 7th, 2015, a team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) arrived in Peachtree City for an on-site assessment as part of a program to achieve Gold Standard re-accreditation. The assessors examined all aspects of the Peachtree City Police Department and focused on areas such as policies and procedures, administration, operations, and support services. Verification was made by this team that the Peachtree City Police Department meets the Commissions' state-of-the-art standards (5th Edition) as part of a voluntary process to gain re-accreditation.
As part of the on-site assessment, the assessors spoke with numerous community partners regarding the department demonstrating meeting these standards. Among other areas, the department was specifically recognized at the hearing in Miami that they have never had so many community partners agree to speak with the assessors about a department. We thank our community partners for their participation. We are pleased to announce the department has been awarded CALEA Law Enforcement Accreditation for the eighth time. It is also our honor to inform our community that the department had been selected by the Commissioners of CALEA to receive the Accreditation with Excellence Award. Without the support of our community partners, we would not be receiving these awards.
The Peachtree City Police Department was initially accredited on November 21, 1992, and then re-accredited in November 1997, 2000, 2003, 2006, 2009, 2012, 2015, and 2019. During these four years, the department has submitted annual reports attesting to its continued compliance with accreditation standards. In addition to the CALEA accreditation, the department has been State Certified since 2008. State Certification requires similar requirements as CALEA. The department was re-certified by the Georgia Association of Chief's of Police in June 2021. There are about 18,000 law enforcement agencies in the country with only 665, or 3.7 percent accredited by CALEA. In addition, the Accreditation with Excellence Award, which this agency has been awarded for the past twelve years, is only awarded to roughly 1% of accredited CALEA agencies.
