Albany City Commissioners honored the Albany Police Department for earning a prestigious international accreditation.     

Mayor Dorothy Hubbard and City Manager James Taylor presented Albany Police Chief John Proctor with a plaque from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies.      APD is one of 43 municipal police agencies in Georgia to earn the designation.  

"I want to say I'm proud of every man and woman, both sworn and civilian that works at APD because all of us had to work together to get this done," said John A. Proctor, Police Chief, Albany Police Department.

CALEA judged APD on 481 standards, everything from hiring to discipline to community involvement.     

Every three years, the department must confirm they are continuing those standards to maintain the accreditation.
