CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Members of the community are invited to attend a public information session on Monday for an accreditation assessment team's examination of the Charleston Police Department .
The meeting will be held on Monday, March 24 at 6 p.m. at the Municipal Court Room in the Reuben M. Greenberg Municipal Building at 180 Lockwood Blvd.
Officials with the Charleston Police Department say a team of assessors from the Commission of Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies is examining all aspects of the CPD's policy, procedures, management, operation and support services.
According to CPD, verification by the team that the Charleston Police Department meets the Commission’s state-of-the-art standards is part of a voluntary on-going process to continue accreditation--a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence.
Police officials say if for some reason an individual cannot speak at the public information session but would still like to provide comments to the assessment team, he/she may do so by telephone. The public may call (843) 720-2405 on Monday, March 24, 2014 between the hours of 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
