Accreditation Information


The Stallings Police Department began the accreditation process through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) in March 2021. CALEA Accreditation has become the primary method for an agency to voluntarily demonstrate their commitment to excellence in law enforcement. The standards upon which the Law Enforcement Accreditation Program is based reflect the current thinking and experience of law enforcement practitioners and researchers. Major law enforcement associations, leading educational and training institutions, governmental agencies and international law enforcement executives acknowledge CALEA's Standards for Law Enforcement Agencies and its Accreditation Programs as benchmarks for professional law enforcement agencies.

Administered by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA), the accreditation program requires agencies to comply with state-of-the-art standards in four areas: policy and procedures, administration, operations and support services. The Stallings Police Department is attempting initial accreditation in April 2024.

CALEA Public Comment Portal

Citizens may now utilize the CALEA Public Comment Portal to comment on the Stallings Police Department and its commitment to the accreditation process, including compliance with CALEA Standards, engagement in community service, delivery of public safety services and overall candidacy for accreditation status. For additional information, please follow the link above.

IMPORTANT: CALEA is not an investigatory body and subsequently the public portal should not be used to submit information for such purposes.  Additionally, there will be no response other than acknowledgment of submissions; however, the information will be considered in context to its relevancy to compliance with standards and the tenets of CALEA® Accreditation.
