Titusville Police Ready for Accreditation
Friday, November 06, 2009

TPD

For the first time in its history, the Titusville Police Department will undergo an initial accreditation assessment December 1st through 3rd, 2009.  This assessment will verify compliance with the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation standards. Our department has been working on this process for close to two years. And now, we will now host a team of assessors that will inspect and verify our compliance with up to 250 standards.

 

The assessment team will examine all aspects of the Titusville Police Department’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services. The standards are set and maintained by the Commission using “best practices in law enforcement” as guidelines. The benefits are both to the department, and our community.

“The standards will help ensure we are delivering the most effective and professional services possible”, said Chief Anthony C. Bollinger.

 

As part of the on-site assessment, the general public is invited to offer comments to the assessment team at 321-264-7871. Comments can also be in writing and must address the agency’s ability to comply with CFA standards. A copy of the standards is available through the Titusville Police Department’s Accreditation Manager, Sergeant Glen Hamann, who can be reached at 321-383-5866.

 

“Our department members having been working diligently on this exciting opportunity for Titusville”, said Police Chief Anthony C. Bollinger. “Our goal is to not only meet the required standards, but exceed them as well”, Bollinger added.

 

For more information regarding CFA or for persons wishing to offer written comments directly to the accreditation staff, please write to: CFA, 3504 Lake Lynda Drive, Suite 380, Orlando, Florida, 32817, or email to info@flaccreditation.org.

 

Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full Commission, which will decide if the agency is to receive reaccredited status. Law enforcement accreditation is for 3 years. Verification by the team that the Titusville Police Department meets the Commission’s standards is a voluntary process.
