Department Solicits Comments During CALEA Assessment

The St. Louis County Police Department is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of a program to achieve re-accreditation by verifying it continues to meet 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 to the CALEA assessment team at a public information session Monday, December 9, 2013 at 5:00 P.M. The assessment team members are Chief James Fox (retired), Newport News Police Department and Training Academy (VA), and Mr. Samuel Farina, Southern Pines Police Department (NC). The session will be conducted in the St. Louis County Police Board Room at Police Headquarters, 7900 Forsyth Blvd., Clayton, Missouri, Room B-117. Telephone and written comments may be made, as well.
