Monroe Police Department is seeking Accreditation through the Commission on Accredited Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). CALEA was founded in 1979 as the first independent law enforcement credentialing authority through the collaborative efforts of several major law enforcement associations. CALEA is a private, not for profit, 501 (C) (3) entity and is not a government organization. Assessors for CALEA will be in Monroe March 12 through 15, 2018 to ensure compliance with CALEA accreditation standards. The Assessors will review our agency's policies, practices, interview personnel, and observe operations.

As part of the assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session on Wednesday, March 14, 2018, at 5:30 p.m. The session will be conducted at the Monroe City Building, 233 S. Main St. Monroe, Ohio 45050 in the City Council Chambers.
