CALEA Accreditation

The Statesville Police Department is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation (CALEA) for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. CALEA was created in 1979 as a credentialing authority through the joint efforts of law enforcement's major executive associations. The Law Enforcement Accreditation process focuses on standards that provide the best practices related to life, health, and safety procedures for the agency. These standards are considered foundational for contemporary law enforcement agencies.
The CALEA offers a public portal to receive comments regarding an agency's compliance with CALEA standards, engagement in the service community, delivery of public safety services, and overall candidacy for accredited status. These comments can be in the form of commendations or concerns. The overall intent of the accreditation process is to provide the participating agency with information to support continuous improvement, as well as foster the pursuit of professional excellence.
