ACCREDITATION TEAM INVITES PUBLIC COMMENTS
THE GULF BREEZE POLICE DEPARTMENT
Gulf Breeze: A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will assess the Gulf Breeze Police Department August 25 -27 2020 to examine all aspects of the Gulf Breeze Police Department’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services. The Gulf Breeze Police Department has to comply with approximately 250 standards in order to receive accredited status. Many of the standards are critical to life, health and safety issues.
As part of the assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team. A copy of the standards is available through the Gulf Breeze Police Department’s Accreditation Manager at 850-934-5121.
For more information regarding CFA or for persons wishing to offer written comments about the Gulf Breeze Police Department’s ability to meet the standards of accreditation, please write to: CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida 32302 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Accreditation Manager for the Gulf Breeze Police Department is Chief Hawthorne. The assessment team is composed of law enforcement practitioners from similar agencies. The assessors will review written materials, interview individuals and visit offices and other places where compliance can be witnessed.
Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full Commission, which will then determine if the agency is to receive accredited status. Gulf Breeze Police Department’s accreditation is valid for 3 years. Verification by the team that the Gulf Breeze Police Department meets the Commission’s standards is part of a voluntary process to gain or maintain accreditation – a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence.
