A team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) will be virtually present with the Zionsville Police Department (ZPD) on June 6 and 7, 2022 to examine all aspects of the ZPD's policies and procedures, management, operations and support services.
ZPD is currently working to earn accreditation with CALEA – a highly prized recognition of public safety professional excellence. Verification by the team that the ZPD meets the Commission's high standards is part of a voluntary process to achieve CALEA accreditation.
As part of the on-site assessment, agency employees and Zionsville community members are invited to offer comments at a virtual public information session on June 6, 2022 beginning at 5 p.m. For Zoom meeting information, contact Accreditation Manager Sergeant Josh Samuelson at firstname.lastname@example.org or (317) 873-5967. Community members may elect to listen only or schedule a time to address the assessors. Please contact Sergeant Samuelson by Friday, June 3, 2022.
If an individual cannot speak at the public information session but would still like to provide comments to the assessment team, please call (317) 873-5967 on June 6, 2022 from 1 – 3 p.m.
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 standards. Information on those standards may be obtained by contacting Sergeant Samuelson.
Anyone wishing to submit written comments about the Zionsville Police Department's ability to comply with the standards for accreditation may send them to CALEA at email@example.com or 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320, Gainesville, VA 20155.
