Accreditation Team Invites Public Comments

“A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will arrive in Maitland on Tuesday, March 21, 2006 to examine all aspects of the Maitland Police Department’s Policies and Procedures, management, operations, and support services”, Chief Gary T. Calhoun announced.  The department must demonstrate to the Commission that it has maintained compliance with approximately 270 standards to continue its accredited status.  In June 2000, the Commission granted accredited status to the Maitland Police Department as the 61st state accredited agency in Florida and granted re-accreditation in June, 2003.


Agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team by calling 407-539-2564 on Wednesday, March 22, 2006 between 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.  Telephone comments are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with the CFA standards.  A copy of the standards is available for review at the Maitland Police Department Office of Professional Standards.


For more information regarding CFA, or for persons wishing to offer written comments about the Maitland Police Department’s ability to meet the standards of accreditation, please write the address below or visit the Commission’s website at


The Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation, Inc.

3504 Lake Lynda Drive, Suite 380

Orlando, Florida 32817


Peter C. Loomis, Accreditation Manager, said, “The assessment team is composed of law enforcement practitioners from other agencies.  The assessors will review written materials, interview individuals, and visit offices and other places where compliance with the standards can be observed.” 


Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full Commission, which will then decide if the Maitland Police Department is to maintain its accredited status.  Maitland’s accreditation is for three years.
