ACCREDITATION TEAM INVITES PUBLIC COMMENTS ABOUT THE ROCKLEDGE POLICE DEPARTMENT
A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will begin April 13, 2021 to examine all aspects of the Rockledge Police Department’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services. The Rockledge Police Department has to comply with approximately 250 standards in order to receive accredited status. Many of the standards are critical to life, health, and safety issues.
As part of the assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team. A copy of the standards manual is available through Rockledge Police Department’s Public Information Officer at 321-690-3988 or at the CFA website.
For more information regarding CFA or for persons wishing to offer written comments about the Rockledge Police Department’s ability to meet the standards of accreditation, please write:
CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida 32302, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Accreditation Program Manager for the Rockledge Police Department is Lt. David Grose. He said the assessment team is composed of law enforcement practitioners from similar agencies. The assessors will review written materials; interview individuals; and view offices and other areas where compliance can be witnessed.
Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full Commission, which will then determine if the agency is to receive accredited status. The Rockledge Police Department’s accreditation is valid for 3 years. Verification by the team that the Rockledge Police Department meets the Commission’s standards is part of a voluntary process to gain or maintain accreditation.
