CMHA Police Department CALEA Accreditation Public Comment Period Open

Twenty years ago, the Police Executive Research Forum, the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives, the National Sheriffs’ Association and the International Association of Chiefs of Police joined together to develop a set of professional standards for all types of law enforcement entities in the United States. Collectively known as the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA), the organization has currently developed over 400 standards and is responsible for administering the accreditation process.

A small percentage of law enforcement agencies nationwide have attained CALEA accreditation, the gold standard in public safety. Accreditation ensures a standard of excellence and recognizes a police department’s commitment to better itself to become the most productive and effective law enforcement agency it can be. CMHA has been accredited since 1998. A reaccreditation demonstrates the high standard CMHA expects of its police force. More information on CALEA is available at

As CMHA PD is seeking its 8th reaccreditation, we are open for public comment on the performance of our police department.
