 In 2018, The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) unanimously certified the Monroe Police Department for Advanced Law Enforcement Accreditation. This achievement is the culmination of a year and a half of work and preparation by the Department, and a direct result of the hard work and continued professionalism of all members of the Monroe Police Department.

What is Accreditation

The CALEA Accreditation programs provide public safety agencies with an opportunity to voluntarily meet an established set of professional standards, which require: 

  • Comprehensive and uniform written directives that clearly define authority, performance, and responsibilities
  • Reports and analyses to make fact-based and informed management decisions.
  • Preparedness to address natural or man-made critical incidents
  • Community relationship-building and maintenance
  • Independent review by subject matter experts
  • Continuous pursuit of excellence through annual reviews and other assessment measures
