Saturday the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies will examine the department's policies, procedures, management, operations and support services.

The accreditation is voluntary and but a high recognition of law enforcement excellence.

The police department was originally accredited by CALEA in July 1999. Accreditation is awarded every three years.

"CALEA began in 1979," said Valdosta Police Lt. Aaron Kirk. "They set standards as a way to make law enforcement agencies more accountable and more professional in their community."

As part as the on site assessment, the community is invited to give their input on the police department's standards and services.

The meeting is monday at 6 p.m. at the City Hall Annex on Lee Street.

If you can't make it out you can still call them that day at 293-3095.
