As part of an on-site assessment by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc., Fairfax County Police held a public forum on April 11 at the Fairfax County Government Center.
CALEA is assessing whether the department complies with its professional standard in the areas of policy and procedures, administration, operations and support services.
Members of the community were invited to submit comments on Fairfax County’s ability to comply with those standards.
Maya Mitchell, a spokesperson for CALEA, said the site visit should last about three to four days. Afterward, a team will review notes and submit a report to the CALEA commission to review for accreditation.
The results of the Fairfax County Police review will come at the next CALEA conference, held in July this year in Baltimore.
