Accreditation

Nationally Accredited Office

The Plano Police Department is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). CALEA is an international organization which was created in 1979 through the combined efforts of four major law enforcement groups:

  • International Association of Chiefs of Police
  • National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives
  • National Sheriff' Association, and
  • Police Executive Research Forum

CALEA was formed for two reasons: to develop a set of law enforcement standards, and to establish and administer an accreditation process through which law enforcement agencies could demonstrate voluntarily that they meet or exceed professionally recognized criteria for excellence in police management and service delivery.
