WEST CARROLLTON — National law enforcement inspectors will be reviewing the West Carrollton Police Department next week.
The three-day assessment by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. starts Sunday and is part of the police department’s re-accreditation process.
Accreditation by CALEA is widely recognized as one of the high designations law enforcement agencies can earn. West Carrollton first gained accreditation in 1992, according to the city.
The on-site assessment will include public comments. Agency employees and members of the community can offer comments at a public information session.
That session will be at 5:30 p.m. Monday in the West Carrollton Civic Center Council Chambers, 300 E. Central Ave. The police department will also offer a “Pizza with Police” event from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday at the YMCA, 900 S. Alex Road.
If an individual cannot speak at the public information session but would still like to provide comments to the assessment team, he/she may do so by telephone by calling 937- 847-4667 from 1 to 3 p.m. Tuesday.
Telephone comments, as well as appearances at the public information session are limited to 10 minutes, and must address the agency’s ability to comply with CALEA’s standards.
A copy of the standards is available at the police department, 300 E. Central Ave. West Carrollton, OH or by calling Deputy Chief David Wessling at 937-847-4670.
