The City of Titusville, Florida / Police / NewsPUBLIC COMMENTS SOUGHT ON THE TITUSVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT’S ACCREDITATION PROCESS
A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law
Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will arrive Tuesday, December 1, 2015, to examine all aspects of the Titusville Police Department’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services, Chief of Police John Lau announced today.
The Titusville Police Department has to comply with approximately 260 standards in order to receive State accredited status. Many of the standards are critical to life, health and safety issues.
As part of the on-site assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team. A copy of the standards is available through Titusville Police Department’s Records Section at (321)567-3907.
"The assessment team is composed of law enforcement practitioners from similar agencies”, Titusville’s Accreditation Manager Stacey Woodward said, “The assessors will review written materials, interview individuals, and inspect all aspects of the department”.
The CFA Assessment Team Leader is Lieutenant Jeff Woodard, Punta Gorda Police
Department. Other team members are Sergeant Shannon Black, Leon County Sheriff's Office and Lieutenant Robert Parmelee, Lauderhill Police Department
Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency they report back to the full Commission, which will then decide if the agency is to receive accredited status.
Each accreditation is for 3 years and verification by the team that the Department meets the Commission’s standards is part of a voluntary process. “Accreditation ensures we are using the best practices in the State and it’s a recognition we can all be very proud of”, said Chief John Lau.
