The Police Department at Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) received its official accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) at the organization’s November conference.
“The members of our police department have worked diligently toward accreditation and we are extremely proud of this accomplishment,” said WSSU Police Chief Patricia Norris. “In August, a CALEA assessment team was on site for three days as part of an intensive review our policies, our work ethic and our overall law enforcement practices. Following a review by the CALEA Board of Commissioners, we were unanimously awarded our initial accreditation.”
The CALEA accreditation program is designed to improve the delivery of public safety services by maintaining a body of standards developed by public safety practitioners to cover a wide range of up-to-date public safety initiatives. A nonprofit organization, it has credentialing authority through the joint efforts of law enforcement’s major executive associations including the International Association of Chiefs of Police, the National Sheriff’s Association, the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives and the police Executive Research Forum. CALEA commissioners include law enforcement executives, elected officials, business executives and academic administrators.
