LCSO Receives Accreditation from CALEA

The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA®), was created in 1979 as a credentialing authority through the joint efforts of law enforcement’s major executive associations. The CALEA Accreditation program seals are reserved for use by those public safety agencies that have demonstrated compliance with CALEA Standards and have been awarded CALEA Accreditation by the Commission.  Receiving national accreditation confirms our agency’s commitment to meeting the highest standards of law enforcement excellence.

This year, assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) conducted both remote and on-site inspections of our organization to ensure compliance with CALEA standards.  Once the inspection was complete, the assessors submitted their report to CALEA for final review and consideration. 

On November 16, 2019, members of our team appeared before a committee in Covington, Kentucky, for final review of the report.  After a question and answer session, the committee recommended a vote for re-accreditation to the full commission that took place later that day.  

We are proud to announce the Lee County Sheriff’s Office was, once again, awarded national re-accreditation by CALEA.  Accreditation is a significant accomplishment.  It requires diligence, commitment and constant attention to detail.  It is a result of every member of our team working collectively to provide the best possible service to our community.
