The Florida Polytechnic University Police Department is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of an endeavor to achieve law enforcement accreditation by verifying it meets professional standards administered by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA). The accreditation program requires agencies to comply with state-of-the-art standards in four basic areas: policy and procedures, administration, operations, and support services.
As part of the on-site assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments about the Florida Polytechnic University Police Department’s ability to meet the standards of accreditation. Those wishing to submit comments can either mail or email to:
CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida 32302, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A copy of the Standards is available at the Florida Polytechnic University Police Department. Local contact is FPPD Accreditation Manager Bill LePere 863-874-8472.
The assessment team is composed of law enforcement practitioners from other law enforcement agencies in Florida. 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 Lieutenant Nicole Minick, Collier County Sheriff’s Office. Other team members are Lieutenant Shawn Johnson from the West Palm Beach Police Department and Major Burt Himmer from the Florida Department of Financial Services – Division of Investigative and Forensic Services.
The on-site assessment is scheduled for April 28 – 30, 2020.
