CALEA Accreditation Public Comment Sought -The Buckhannon Police Department is a CALEA Accredited Agency. This post has to do with maintaining that accreditation. CALEA maintains an access portal for comment and feedback about candidate agencies seeking initial accreditation and reaccreditation status. The overall intent of the accreditation process is to provide the participating agency with information to support continuous improvement and foster the pursuit of professional excellence. Access to the comment portal is provided as an opportunity for comments, commendations, and other information regarding the agency’s quality of service or other information relevant to the accreditation process.  IMPORTANT: CALEA is not an investigatory body; subsequently, the public portal should not be used to submit information for such purposes. Additionally, there will be no response other than acknowledgment of submissions; however, the information will be considered in context to its relevancy to compliance with standards and the tenets of CALEA® Accreditation.  Access to the CALEA Accreditation Public Comment Portal can be found using this link: https://cimrs2.calea.org/1006
