Corvallis Police Department Gold Standard Reaccreditation Assessment - 11/29/17

A team of assessors from The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement (CALEA) will be conducting an evaluation of the Corvallis Police Department from December 10 through December 13, 2017. The Gold Standard Assessment process is a voluntary assessment format that primarily focuses on processes and outcomes associated with standards specific to agency policies. In short, it works to measure the impact of accreditation as opposed to simply confirming compliance trough a file-by-file review. The assessment team is made up of police professionals from around the country that have been trained to thoroughly assess police departments seeking reaccreditation status and ensure that each meets the Commission's state-of-the-art standards.

Corvallis Police Department was initially accredited through CALEA in 1995 and this will be our seventh reaccreditation processes since then, for a total of 22 consecutive years as an accredited agency. Corvallis Police Department is one of only two (2) law enforcement agencies in the State of Oregon currently accredited through CALEA.

As part of the on-site assessment, agency personnel and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session on Monday, December 11, 2017 at 4:30 PM. This session will take place in the Main Meeting Room at the Corvallis-Benton County Library (645 NW Monroe Avenue). 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 (541) 766-6109 on Monday, December 11, 2017 between 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM. Telephone comments as well as appearances at the public information session are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency's ability to comply with the CALEA standards. Arrangements can be made to view the CALEA standards by contacting Laurie Jackson, Accreditation Manager, at (541) 766-6778.

Persons wishing to offer written comments about the Corvallis Police Department's ability to meet the standards for accreditation are requested to write to: The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA), 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320, Gainesville, Virginia 20155.
