The Durham Police Department is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of a program to achieve 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.
As part of the on-site assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session on Monday, June 10, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. The session will be conducted in the City Council Chambers at City Hall, 101 City Hall Plaza, Durham, NC 27701.
Agency employees and the public are also invited to offer comments by calling (919) 560-4594 on Monday, June 10, 2013 between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Comments will be taken by the Assessment Team.
Telephone comments as well as appearances at the public information session are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with CALEA’s standards. For questions concerning the CALEA standards, contact Samuel Farina Jr. at (919) 560-4581.
Anyone wishing to submit written comments about the Durham Police Department’s ability to comply with the standards for accreditation may send them to the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement, Inc. (CALEA), 13575 Heathcote Blvd., Suite 320 Gainesville, Va., 20155 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
