The Round Rock Police Department will soon complete a tri-ennial review required to retain its status as a fully accredited agency, a highly prized distinction which the department has maintained since its initial accreditation in 2004. The voluntary process of obtaining accreditation imparts upon the agency a national recognition of law enforcement professional excellence.
A team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) will arrive August 28 to examine all aspects of the department's policy and procedures, management, operations and support services.
As part of the on-site assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session. Persons wishing to speak but who cannot appear at the public information session may provide comments to the assessment team by telephone between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m.on August 30 at (512) 341-3129.
Comments offered during the public information session must address the Round Rock Police Department's ability to comply with CALEA's standards. Appearances and telephone comments are limited to 10 minutes.
