CALEA

CA Law Enforcement Accreditation

In November 2012, the Findlay Police Department was awarded full accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).  CALEA is a credentialing authority, based in the United States, whose primary mission is to accredit public safety agencies, namely law enforcement agencies, training academies, communication centers, and campus public safety agencies. 

Standards are developed by CALEA to assist law enforcement agencies in establishing and maintaining the best professional practices.  High liability areas such as use of force, vehicle pursuits, personnel training, recruitment and selection are among the many standards our agency must address.

Through the CALEA process, the department continually performs self-evaluation, always looking to better performance and constantly improving the services we provide to the community. 

The process of accreditation involves yearly reporting to CALEA, to ensure ongoing compliance, as well as site based assessments which now occur every four years.  The department was awarded re-accreditation in 2012 and is working towards another award in November 2019.
