The Frisco Police Department has completed its voluntarily assessment against a body of 479 nationally recognized professional standards developed by The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA). This required an in-depth review and audit of every aspect of the department's organization, management, operations, and administration.
In August 2008, the department underwent the initial accreditation review in the Law Enforcement Accreditation Program. On December 6, 2008, the department was awarded full accreditation. Our department was awarded its reaccreditation designation in November 2011. The next assessment will take place in July 2014.
Guided by our mission, vision, and organizational values, the Frisco Police Department took a participatory approach to this process, assigning the lions’ share of policy research and development to many members. In fact, these days, accreditation familiarization training begins early in any Frisco Police Department employee’s career, with an introductory segment being presented in their orientation phase of employment.
Because we believe that accurate and timely information periodically disseminated to the community during the accreditation and reaccreditation process is critical to our success, please check back for updates on our commitment and our progress.
This voluntary effort helps assure our citizens the Frisco Police Department is committed to professional excellence and delivery of the highest level of service to our community.
