UCF Police Accreditation Team Invites Public Comments

Posted January 16, 2019

ORLANDO, Jan. 15, 2019 – Before a team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement arrives at UCFPD in March, agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team.

CFA assessors will arrive on campus Tuesday, March 5, for a three-day examination of all UCFPD polices and procedures; management; operations; and support services. UCFPD must comply with approximately 250 standards related to life, health and safety issues in order to maintain accreditation.
A copy of the standards manual is available though UCF Police Public Information Officer Courtney Gilmartin, 407-823-5007 or Courtney.gilmartin@ucf.edu.

For more information about the accreditation process or to offer comments, email CFA at flaccreditation@fdle.state.fl.us or write CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, FL 32302.
Deborah Moody will serve as accreditation program manager. The assessment team is comprised of law enforcement practitioners from agencies similar to UCFPD who will review written materials, interview staff, and visit offices and other areas to witness compliance.

Once the assessors complete their review, they’ll report their findings back to the full commission, which will make a determination about accreditation.

Though accreditation is voluntary, it’s an important measure for ensuring that UCFPD provides high-quality service to the community it serves. UCFPD first received accreditation in 2013, which was renewed in 2016, per the three-year validation period.
