News Release
Corvallis Police Department Reaccreditation Assessment - 11/23/21

The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc. (CALEA) will conduct a virtual
site-based assessment of the Corvallis Police Department December 6-8, 2021, as part of our application
for reaccreditation. The virtual site-based assessment is a culmination of the 4-year reaccreditation
assessment process. Each year of the past four years has seen a portion of the Department’s
accreditation files electronically reviewed by a Compliance Service Member. This review process
ensures written directives are current and up to date, and that proofs (documentation) of compliance are
in place, which include many time-sensitive activities, such as analyses, audits, inspections, etc. – all
intended to confirm continued compliance with the applicable CALEA law enforcement standards.

This electronic review of the accreditation files over a 4-year period allows our site-based assessors to
concentrate more closely on select areas of focus. The site-based assessment involves mapping process
and outcomes related to standards, interviewing members of the Department, and gathering community
feedback. The final credentialing decision will be made by the Board of CALEA Commissioners after
they review the assessors’ final report.

Corvallis Police Department was initially accredited through CALEA in 1995, making this our eighth
reaccreditation assessment since then for a total of 26 consecutive years as an accredited agency.
Corvallis Police Department is one of only three (3) law enforcement agencies in the State of Oregon
currently accredited through CALEA. 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.

As part of the virtual site-based assessment, agency personnel and members of the community are
invited to offer comments at a virtual public information session (GoToMeeting) on Monday, December
6, 2021 at 4:30 PM. Send your name and email address to CPD.Accreditation@CorvallisOregon.gov by
Friday, December 3 at 12 Noon to receive a GoToMeeting invitation to speak with the assessors. In
addition, individuals may also speak with the assessors by telephone on Monday, December 6, between
1 PM to 3 PM at (541) 766-6954. All comments, by telephone or via GoToMeeting, are limited to 5
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
