The Corpus Christi Police Department is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of a program to achieve accreditation by verifying it meets professional standards.
Administered by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA®), the accreditation program requires agencies to comply with state-of-the-art standards in four basic areas: policy and procedures, administration, 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 Tuesday, December 1, 2015 at 6:00 P.M. The session will be conducted in the City Hall Council Chambers located at 1201 Leopard Street.
Agency employees and the public are also invited to offer comments by calling 361-886-2792 on Tuesday, December 1, 2015 between the hours of 1:00 P.M. and 3:00 P.M. Comments will be taken by the assessment team.
Telephone comments as well as appearances at the public information session are limited to 5 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with CALEA’s standards. Local contact is Lieutenant Maria Huerta-Garcia at 361-826-2977.
Anyone wishing to submit written comments about the Corpus Christi Police Department’s ability to comply with the standards for accreditation may send them to 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320, Gainsville, Virginia, 20155.
