Accreditation Team Invites Public Comments About Coral Springs Police Department

Post Date:05/28/2019 4:49 PM

A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will arrive July 10, 2019, to examine all aspects of the Coral Springs Police Department’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services.  The Coral Springs Police Department has to comply with approximately 100 standards in order to receive accredited status.  Many of the standards are critical to life, health and safety issues.

The assessment team is composed of law enforcement practitioners from similar agencies.  The assessors will review written materials; interview individuals; and visit offices and other areas where compliance can be witnessed. 

Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full Commission, which will then determine if the agency is to receive accredited status. The Coral Springs Police Department’s accreditation is valid for 3 years.  Verification by the team that Coral Springs Police Department meets the Commission’s standards is part of a voluntary process to gain or maintain accreditation--a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence.

As part of the assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team.  A copy of the standards manual is available through Coral Springs Police Department’s Accreditation Manager, Miriam Simon, at 954-346-1221.

For more information regarding CFA or for persons wishing to offer written comments about the Coral Springs Police Department’s ability to meet the standards of accreditation, please write:

CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida  32302, or mailto:flaccreditation@fdle.state.fl.us
