The Milford Police Department is scheduled for an on-site assessment (November 18 – November 20, 2019) as part of a program to achieve accreditation by verifying it meets certain 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.
Accreditation is for four years, during which the agency must submit annual reports, and participate in annual remote web-based assessments attesting continued compliance with those standards under which it was initially accredited.
As part of the on-site assessment, employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session at the Milford Police Department on Monday, November 18, 2019 at 4:00 pm. The Milford Police Department is located at 430 Boston Post Road.
If for some reason an individual cannot speak at the public information session but would still like to provide comments to the assessment team, he/she may do so by telephone. The public may call 203-783-4881 on Tuesday, November 19, 2019 between the hours of 1:30 and 3:30 pm. 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 Standards.
Persons willing to offer written comments about the Milford Police Department’s ability to meet the standards for accreditation are requested to write: Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement, Inc. (CALEA®), 13575 Healthcote Boulevard, Suite 320 Gainesville, Virginia, 20155.
