The Baltimore County Police Department received the CALEA Law Enforcement Accreditation November 2, 2014 for the ninth time. Accreditation means a police department meets a national body of standards developed by law enforcement professionals.

The BCoPD was first accredited in 1984; the Department voluntarily requests reassessment every three years.

International Gold Standard for Safety Agencies

The accreditation process is rigorous and is a year-long effort by the BCoPD’s Accreditation Team. The team is responsible for the hard work involved in documenting the Department’s compliance with CALEA’s standards in Policy and Procedures, Administration, Operations and Support Services.

CALEA was developed to enhance the status of law enforcement as a profession. CALEA seeks to improve public safety services by maintaining a body of standards developed by public safety practitioners and covering a wide range of up-to-date public safety initiatives; establishing and administering an accreditation process; and recognizing professional excellence.

Additional information about CALEA is available at www.calea.org.
