The College Station Police Department recently received national reaccreditation awards in law enforcement and public safety communications. CSPD strives to serve our community with excellence by following established best practices and through constant communication with our community.

The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) has accredited the CSPD since 1991, awarding the department an advanced certification with a meritorious designation. In 2003, the Public Safety Communications Division became Texas’s first accredited communications program.

CALEA accreditation recognizes the CSPD’s professionalism, stewardship, integrity, diversity, continuous improvement, objectivity, credibility, consistency, knowledge, experience, accountability, and collaboration.

The processes involved in accreditation impact administrative, management, and service-delivery aspects of all operations and are designed to increase citizen and employee confidence in the CSPD’s goals, objectives, policies, and practices.
