CALEA to evaluate 911 Center for accreditation that demonstrates commitment to excellence

 As part of the process to be awarded the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) Public Safety Communications Accreditation, a team of assessors will examine all aspects of the 911 Center’s policy and procedures, management, operations and support services through a remote assessment beginning June 1.

Accreditation lasts for four years, during which the agency must submit annual reports attesting continued compliance with assessed standards. Forsyth County was last awarded the CALEA Public Safety Communications Accreditation on Nov. 5, 2016. The CALEA assessment team is composed of public safety communications practitioners from similar out-of-state agencies. The assessors will review written materials, videos and will interview individuals to verify compliance. Once the commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they will report back to the full commission, which will then decide if the agency is to be granted accredited status.

As part of the assessment, agency personnel and members of the community are invited to offer comments via telephone or mail. Any person wishing to submit questions or comments in writing to the commission can do so by mailing:

Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement, Inc (CALEA)
13585 Heathcote Blvd, Suite 320
Gainesville, VA, 20155

All comments must address the agency’s ability to comply with CALEA. Those wishing to comment via telephone may do so by calling 1-866-899-4679 (Access Code 745839749) on Tuesday, June 2, between 2 and 4 p.m. Telephone comments are limited to 10 minutes. A copy of the assessment standards is available at the Forsyth County Public Safety Complex (3520 Settingdown Road). The local contact is Michelle Smith, who can be reached at (678) 513- 5949.
