The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA®), was created in 1979 as a credentialing authority through the joint efforts of law enforcement’s major executive associations. The CALEA Accreditation program seals are reserved for use by those public safety agencies that have demonstrated compliance with CALEA Standards and have been awarded CALEA Accreditation by the Commission.

Accreditation Public Comment

This is a newly proposed standard written to facilitate public comment during the CALEA Assessment process, staff is creating a web-based public access portal. In preparation for implementation of the new assessment model, a standard requiring CALEA client agencies to publicize the availability of this portal is required to ensure awareness.  At least 60 days prior to each web-based assessment, the agency provides public notice announcing the availability of the CALEA Public Comment Portal for feedback on the agency’s performance as a public safety entity.  

The link for this Public Comment Portal can be found here.
