ACCREDITATION TEAM INVITES PUBLIC COMMENTS ABOUT
THE SATELLITE BEACH POLICE DEPARTMENT
A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will arrive on Tuesday, August 19th, 2015, to examine all aspects of the Satellite Beach Police Department policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services. The agency has to comply with approximately 260 standards in order to receive accredited status. Many of the standards are critical to life, health and safety issues. Accreditation is for a 3 year period, after which the agency is visited again every three years for re-accreditation. This will be the 5th such accreditation assessment for the agency, which was initially accredited in 2000.
As part of the on-site assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team. A copy of the standards is available through the Satellite Beach Police Department by contacting Administrative Assistant Patti Noe @ 321-773-4400 ext. 142.
For more information regarding CFA or for persons wishing to offer written comments about the Satellite Beach Police Department’s ability to meet the standards of accreditation, please write: CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida 32302, or email to email@example.com.
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 places where compliance can be witnessed.
The CFA Assessment Team Leader is Ms. Brenda Medel of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. Other team members are Captain Bob Brongel (retired), Florida Department of Financial Services, and Detective Christine Naulty, of the Boynton Beach Police Department.
Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full CFA Commission, which will then decide if the agency is to receive accredited status. Verification by the team that the Satellite Beach 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.
