The Thomasville Police Department is being recognized for its service in the community, with the Gold Standard of Accreditation Award from CALEA.

The Police Department received the Gold Standard of Accreditation Award from CALEA this week. 100 agencies in the country out of 1,000 accredited agencies are eligible to win the Gold Standard Award.

CALEA assessors from around the country evaluate the officers on their overall performance. "One came from Canada, and one came from Virginia, and they came down they had no idea who we were, and they conducted their assessment, and after the conclusion of the assessment, they recommended us for the Gold Standard of Excellence," said Chief Troy Rich Thomasville Police Department.

Officers say they are happy to be certified and they hope this will let residents know they are doing the right thing for the community.
