JCSO Achieves National Reaccreditation


Last month, the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) reaccredited the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office for law enforcement operations and public safety communications. The Sheriff’s Office first achieved national accreditation for its law enforcement program in 1994, and for communications in 2014.

Accreditation is a voluntary and extensive peer-review process that recognizes law enforcement agencies for professional excellence. Accredited agencies must meet state-of-the-art standards for its policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services. To achieve reaccreditation, the Sheriff’s Office met 484 professional standards for its law enforcement program and 211 standards for its public safety communications.

In addition to awarding reaccreditation, CALEA commissioners selected the JCSO to receive the Accreditation with Excellence Award, created to recognize agencies that have clearly demonstrated a commitment to professionalism and have institutionalized the CALEA management model within the organization. This distinguished title is attached to the agency’s reaccreditation status for the next four years.

Later this year, the JCSO will complete the reaccreditation process for the Jefferson County Detention Facility through the American Correctional Association. We are also accredited by the National Commission on Correctional Health Care and the American Society of Crime Lab Directors.
