On-site assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) have arrived in Suwanee to examine all aspects of the Suwanee Police policy and procedures, management, operations, and support services, the release said. The police department is seeking national re-accreditation from CALEA.
As part of the assessment, agency personnel and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session Tuesday, August 20, at 6 p.m. at the Crossroads Center, 323 Buford Highway.
Also, people who can't attend the public session but still want to provide comments to the assessment team may do so by telephone or in writing.
The public may offer comments via telephone Monday, Aug. 19, from 2-4 p.m. at 770-904-7655. Telephone comments as well as those offered at the public session are limited to 10 minutes and must address the Suwanee Police ability to comply with CALEA standards.
A copy of the standards is available from the Suwanee Police Department. Contact Lt. Dan Clark at email@example.com or 770-904-7605.
Those who want to offer written comments about the Suwanee Police ability to meet accreditation standards can mail comments to: Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement, Inc., 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320, Gainesville, VA, 20155.
"Verification by the team that the Suwanee Police Department meets the Commission’s state of the art standards is part of a voluntary process to gain accreditation, a highly prized recognition of public safety professional excellence," Suwanee Police Chief Mike Jones said in the release.
