“A team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) will arrive at the Littleton Police Department (LPD) on November 6, 2017 to examine all aspects of the LPD policy and procedures, management, operations, and support services,” Chief Douglas Stephens announced. “Verification by the accreditation team that LPD meets the commission’s state-of-the-art standards is part of a voluntary process to maintain accreditation – a highly prized recognition of public safety professional excellence,” Chief Stephens said. The LPD has been accredited since 2006.
Telephone comments as well as appearances at the public information session area are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with CALEA standards.
Persons wishing to offer written comments about the LPD’s ability to meet the CALEA standards for accreditation are requested to write: Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement, Inc., 13575 Heathcote Blvd., Ste. 320, Gainesville, Virginia 20155.
Accreditation is for three years, during which the agency must submit annual reports attesting to continued compliance with those standards under which it was initially accredited.
