The Valparaiso Police Department is scheduled for an on-site assessment to achieve accreditation on next week and members of the community are invited to offer their comments at a public information session. The assessment will be administered by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc., which requires agencies to comply with state-of-the-art standards in four basic areas: policy and procedures, administration, operation, and support services, and while this will take place between April 14th through the 17th, the public is invited out at 6pm, on April 16th, at the Valparaiso Police Department, or by calling (219) 476-7955, between the hours of 1pm-3pm. Telephone comments will be limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency's ability to comply with CALEA's standards. A copy of the standards is available at the Valparaiso
Police Department by contacting Sergeant Michael McLinn.
