CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A commission that accredits law enforcement agencies is asking feedback from the public on the Charleston Police Department.
The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies requires agencies to meet state-of-the-art standards in four areas: policy and procedures, administration, operations and support services, a release states.
Agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments about the department at an information session Monday at 5 p.m. at the Municipal Court Room in the Greenberg Municipal Building at 180 Lockwood Boulevard.
Comments are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency's ability to comply with the commission's standards, copies of which are available at police headquarters.
Those who wish to offer comments but cannot attend in person may call between 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Monday. The number to call during that time is 843-720-2405.
Anyone wishing to submit written comments may send them to this address:
The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc.
13575 Heathcote Blvd., Suite 320
Gainesville VA 20155
They may also submit the comments via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Charleston Police Department is an accredited agency and seeks to continue its nationwide accreditation, the release states. That requires regular on-site assessments.
