Renton Police Department - Nationally Accredited by CALEA
The Renton Police Department is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA). Accreditation is a voluntary process that includes an on-site assessment by CALEA representatives and an extensive review of department policies and procedures. An agency is accredited for three years, during which the agency must submit annual reports attesting continued compliance with CALEA standards. The Renton Police Department was initially accredited in 1991, and was successfully reaccredited in 1996, 2001, and 2004.
A team of assessors from CALEA will arrive August 26, 2007, to examine all aspects of the Renton Police Department's policy and procedures, management, operations, and support services. As part of the on-site assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session August 27, 2007 at 7:00 p.m. The session will be conducted in the Conferencing Center located on the 7th floor of Renton City Hall, 1055 South Grady Way, Renton. If you would like to speak at the public information session but are unable to attend, please click here for details on how to make written or telephone comments.
