CALEA Accreditation Assessment Team invites public comment

calea

On August 14, 2017, a team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) will examine all aspects of the Lombard Police Department’s policy and procedures, management, operations and support services.

This assessment is part of Lombard’s ongoing CALEA certification program.

“The verification team will assess if the Lombard Police Department meets the Commission’s state-of-the-art standards. This is part of a voluntary process to gain reaccreditation—a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence,” said Lombard Police Chief Ray Byrne.

Both the public and Lombard employees are invited to offer comments on the agency’s services and performance at a public information session, August 15, 2017, 5:30 p.m., in the Village Board Room, 255 E. Wilson Ave., as a part of the on-site assessment.  

If an individual cannot speak at the public information session, but would still like to provide comments to the assessment team, he/she may call (630) 873-4464 between the hours of 1- 3 p.m., on August 15, 2017. All public comments are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with the Commission’s standards. Persons may also send written comments pertaining to the Lombard Police Department’s ability to meet the standards for accreditation to: Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA), 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320, Gainesville, Virginia, 20155. CALEA accredited police departments must comply with 484 standards in order to gain accredited status. A copy of the standards is available at the Lombard Police Department Accreditation Office.

The Accreditation Program Manager for the Lombard Police Department Lesley Rodono said the assessment team is composed of law enforcement practitioners from similar, but out-of-state agencies. The assessors will review written materials; interview individuals; and visit offices and other places where compliance can be witnessed. 

Assessors are: Team Leader, Chief Wayne McCoy of the Blue Springs, Missouri Police Department and Major Mark Hallum of the Fort Smith, Arkansas Police Department. 

Once the CALEA assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full Commission, which will then decide if the agency is to be granted accredited status, Accreditation Manager Rodono stated. Accreditation lasts for three years, during which the agency must submit annual reports attesting continued compliance with those standards under which it was initially accredited. 

For information call Lesley Rodono at (630)873-4465. For more information regarding the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. call (800) 368-3757 or (703) 352-4225 or email calea@calea.org.
