The Gwinnett County Police Department has announced it has successfully obtained accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc. for the ninth consecutive time. 

The department was initially accredited in 1993, and reassessments occur every four years. In attaining this accreditation, which was approved unanimously by the commission during a hearing in November, the department has demonstrated compliance with more than 400 standards established to promote fair and professional law enforcement services in the areas of policy, procedures, management and operations.

The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc. is an independent, nationally accrediting authority formed in 1979 by four major law enforcement membership associations — the International Association of Chiefs of Police, the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives, the National Sheriff’s Association and the Police Executive Research Forum.
