TITUSVILLE, Florida – A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will arrive December 4, 2012 to examine all aspects of the Titusville Police Department’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services, Interim Chief of Police John Lau announced today.
The Titusville Police Department has to comply with approximately 260 standards in order to maintain accredited status. Many of the standards are critical to life, health and safety issues.
As part of the on-site assessment, department members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team. A copy of the standards is available through Accreditation Manager Tammy King, 321-264-7872.
For more information regarding CFA or for persons wishing to offer written comments about the Titusville Police Department’s ability to meet the standards of accreditation, please email: [email protected]
The assessors will review written materials; interview individuals; and visit offices and other places where compliance can be witnessed. The CFA Assessment Team Leader is Tom Lewis with the Punta Gorda Police Department. Other team members include Michelle Cook with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office and Van Toth with the Hialeah Gardens Police Department.
Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the department, they report back to the full Commission, which will decide if the department is to maintain accredited status. The Titusville Police Departments accreditation is for 3 years.
“Verification by this team that our department meets the Commission’s standards is part of a voluntary process to maintain accreditation and is a highly prized recognition of law enforcement excellence,” Interim Chief Lau said.
