February 2010

In February of 2010, the Titusville Police became an accredited department when it received the prestigous Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA).

The Commission’s confirmation concluded a two-year process in which the department completely revamped its policies and procedures to ensure they coincided with best practices in law enforcement throughout the State.

The benefits are both to the department, and our community. “I’m proud of all of the strong support we received from the men and women of this department during the intensive and lengthy accreditation process”, said Chief Tony Bollinger. “And we are very thankful for all the support we received from our City Manager, City Council, and citizens of Titusville”, Bollinger added. “This standard of accreditation will help ensure we are one of the best Law Enforcement agencies in the State of Florida.”

An accreditation program has long been recognized as a means of maintaining the highest standards of professionalism. Accreditation is the certification by an independent reviewing authority that an entity has met specific requirements and prescribed standards. Schools, universities, and hospitals are some of the most well known organizations that are required to maintain accreditation. Law enforcement agencies in Florida can now attain accredited status through the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation, Inc.

In 1993, Florida Statute 943.125 directed that the Florida Sheriffs Association and the Florida Police Chiefs Association create a voluntary law enforcement accreditation program.

Representatives from these Associations developed a process for accreditation which required compliance with approximately 250 professional standards designed specifically for Florida law enforcement agencies. The Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation, Inc. was formed, comprised of four Sheriffs, four Chiefs of Police, and one representative each from the Association of Counties, the League of Cities, the State Law Enforcement Chiefs' Association, the Judiciary, and the Inspectors General. The Commission meets three times per year to oversee the accreditation program and to officially accredit agencies that have passed the rigorous review process.
