Fayetteville Police Department to hold on-site Reaccreditation Assessment
On November 18th, 1989, The Fayetteville Police Department became the 122nd Law Enforcement Agency in the Nation and the 4th Law Enforcement Agency in North Carolina to achieve the honor of accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). Since that time, the department has continued to prove compliance by being reaccredited every three years.
The accreditation program requires agencies to comply with nationally recognized best practices in four basic areas: policy and procedure, administration, operations, and support services.
On August 27th, 2011 through August 30th, 2011, a four-day on-site assessment will take place. As part of the on-site assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments by calling (910) 391-0947 on Sunday August 28th between the hours of 1:00pm and 3:00pm. There will also be a Public Information Session on Monday, August 29th at 6:00pm. The session will be conducted in the 1st floor Assembly Room of the Fayetteville Police Department Police Administration Building located at 467 Hay Street, Fayetteville, North Carolina. The Assessment Team will take comments from the public at that time.
Telephone comments as well as appearances at the Public Information Session should address the agency's ability to comply with CALEA standards. The CALEA standards are available for review at the Fayetteville Police Department by contacting the local contact, Vanessa Davidson at (910) 433-1423.
Anyone wishing to submit comments regarding the Fayetteville 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), 10302 Eaton Place, Suite 100, Fairfax, Virginia 22030-2215.
