PLAINFIELD PD - CALEA RE-ACCREDITATION - DECEMBER 10-12
The Plainfield Police Department is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of a program to achieve re-accreditation by verifying it meets professional standards.
Administered by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA), the accreditation program requires agencies to comply with state-of-the-art standards in four basic areas: policy and procedures, administration, operations and support services.
This re-accreditation assessment will be held December 10 through December 12, 2017. The Plainfield Police Department was originally accredited in March, 1997. Of CALEA’s 189 standards, the Plainfield Police Department will attempt to show compliance with 162 applicable standards.
