City of Findlay Police Department Receives Law Enforcement Re-Accreditation
Maintains accreditation for third consecutive renewal period.
The City of Findlay is proud to announce that the Findlay Police Department has received notice of re-accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). Findlay is one of just 43 Municipal Law Enforcement Agencies across the state of Ohio who maintains this accreditation. The City of Findlay originally received its accreditation in 2012.
“The City of Findlay is very proud to have such a high caliber Police Department. Our men and women in uniform show up each day to serve their community and do it at a level that I would put up against any other department in the country. I am thankful to see that hard work recognized by CALEA,” said Mayor Christina Muryn.
According to W. Craig Hartley, Jr., the Executive Director of CALEA, “The process of CALEA Accreditation begins with a rigorous self-assessment, requiring a review of policies, practices and processes against internationally accepted public safety standards. This is followed with an assessment by independent assessors with significant public safety experience. Additionally, public feedback is received to promote community trust and engagement, and structured interviews are conducted with select agency personnel and others with knowledge to assess the agency’s effectiveness and overall service delivery capabilities. The decision to accredit is rendered by a governing body of twenty-one Commissioners following a public hearing and review of all reporting documentation.”
The Findlay Police Department includes 83 team members. 65 sworn officers, 11 dispatchers, and 7 civilian employees.
