Mar 22 @ 6:00 pm
A team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA®) will be evaluating the Golden PD from Monday, March 22 to Wednesday, March 24. During their virtual assessment, the CALEA assessors will examine all aspects of the Golden Police Department’s policy and procedures, management, operations and support services to determine if they continue to meet CALEA’s standards for law enforcement agencies as part of a voluntary process to gain accreditation – a highly prized recognition of public safety professional excellence.
The GPD voluntarily participates in this process by complying with approximately 368 standards established by the commission to gain accredited status. The standards cover virtually all areas of the Department’s operations and administration, including patrol, investigations, communications, finance, recruiting, personnel and training.
The GPD has already undergone an extensive series of four annual web-based assessments by CALEA Compliance Service Members. The virtual on-site assessment is the final step in gaining re-accreditation status. The GPD first became accredited by the commission in July 2008 and has maintained this status continuously since that date.
