Commission On Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA), Gainesville, Virginia

What:
The Pinellas County Sheriff’s office was awarded its eighth consecutive law enforcement accreditation at a national conference in Charleston, South Carolina over this past weekend.

When:
The presentation was made on Saturday, March 23, 2013.

Where:
The presentation took place during a Commission on Accreditation For Law Enforcement (CALEA) National Conference, held in Charleston, South Carolina.

Why/How:
The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office is one of a few law enforcement agencies across the nation to earn eight consecutive accreditations by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, (CALEA).

Last October a team of CALEA inspectors spent a week examining all aspects of the Sheriff’s Office law enforcement policies, procedures, management, operations and support services. Through the inspection process, the team also heard from citizens during scheduled public hearings.

The CALEA inspection, which occurs every three years, is part of the agency’s voluntary commitment to maintain national accreditation, a highly recognized achievement and acknowledgement of professional excellence in the law enforcement field.

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s office scored a 100% compliance with 329 mandatory CALEA standards. The agency also scored a 100% in “other than mandatory” standards, where the threshold for approval is 80%.

In the official announcement of accreditation, CALEA executives commend the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office for “demonstrating a commitment to professional excellence in policy and practice.”

Accreditation is for three years. The Sheriff’s Policy Development and Accreditation Division team was also commended for their efforts in this achievement, and will continue to submit compliance reports as required for the next accreditation cycle.
