This morning, our agency was officially reaccredited and awarded the prestigious Excelsior status by the Commission of Law Enforcement Accreditation Board.
The Excelsior status is the highest level of achievement a police agency can receive. This is the first time our agency has received this status by successfully completing its reaccreditation with no corrective actions or compliance issues. As a matter of fact, the team of assessors that visited our agency stated we were exemplary and flawless! The Excelsior status is achieved when an agency successfully attains reaccreditation for 5 successful three year cycles. We obtained our first accreditation status in 2007.
Chief Augello stated “An accreditation program has long been recognized as a means of maintaining the highest standards of professionalism. The assessment process is an intensive formal review of our agency’s policies, procedures and practices. Attaining accredited status demonstrates to our community that our agency is committed to maintaining the highest standards of professional law enforcement service.”
We thank Accreditation Specialist Alyssa Snedeker for all her hard work and preparation she provided during this process. #PBPD #PalmBayProud
