CHP Seeking Reaccreditation
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) recently issued a press release about their upcoming reaccreditation process. According to the press release, they’re seeking public input later this month as part of an assessment from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA).
CALEA is an internationally recognized nonprofit organization aimed at improving law enforcement and public safety sectors through assessments and accreditation. The CHP is the largest state law enforcement agency in the U.S. to be accredited, and has been since 2010.
Public Input Regarding The CHP
A very important part of the accreditation process involves community feedback. The public input can help officials with CALEA to assess how the CHP is doing. Members of the public are being invited to comment via a telephone number.
On Tuesday, June 30, 2020, anybody is welcome to call in. Additionally, there will be a virtual public hearing at 1:00 p.m. Members of the public will be able to ask questions and provide commentary.
Three-Day Accreditation Process
In addition to the public input portion of the reaccreditation process, there will be a three-day virtual visit by a team of assessors from CALEA. They will be looking over the CHP’s polices and procedures to determine if they are within the limits of CALEA’s accreditation standards.
The virtual assessment will include examinations of both administrative offices and field offices. Officials with the California Highway Patrol can expect to be under public scrutiny during this reaccreditation process, but this is an important part of ensuring highway safety for troopers and all other motorists and roadway users.
