Alpharetta police up for accreditation renewal


Law enforcement professionals from around the country will meet in Alpharetta later this month as part of the police department’s effort to renew its national accreditation for another four years.

Members of the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies will assess all aspects of the department’s operations and managements as part of the four-day visit, city officials said. They will review written materials, interview individuals, and visit offices and other places where compliance can be witnessed.

As part of the assessment, a public information and comment session has been set for 5 p.m. March 27 at Alpharetta City Hall, 2 Park Plaza, Alpharetta.

Those who cannot attend can comment by phone 2 - 4 p.m. March 28 by calling 678-297-6334 or submit written comments to CALEA, 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320, Gainesville VA 22030-2215.
