LPD awarded CALEA accreditation for the fifth time

Post Date:04/10/2018
CALEA - The gold standard in public safetyThe Littleton Police Department (LPD) has been awarded CALEA accreditation at the organization’s 2018 spring meeting. The award demonstrates the agency’s commitment to professional excellence in policy and practice. This is LPD’s fifth consecutive accreditation.

Accreditation from CALEA (Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies) requires that the department meet 381 professional standards based on national best practices. The reaccreditation process takes place every four years and requires an extensive review including a week-long, on-site audit by outside assessors. The agency must demonstrate continual compliance during the full four-year award cycle.

LPD is one of only 18 Colorado law enforcement agencies who have achieved full accreditation status. Chief Doug Stephens stated, “We are very proud to have received our fifth reaccreditation from CALEA. Accreditation helps us achieve our goals of transparency and commitment to high professional standards for the community we serve.”
