CALEA Accreditation Public Comment

The Buckhannon Police Department is a CALEA Accredited Agency. 

CALEA maintains an access portal that allows for comment and feedback about candidate agencies seeking initial accreditation and reaccreditation status. The overall intent of the accreditation process is to provide the participating agency with information to support continuous improvement, as well as foster the pursuit of professional excellence. Access to the comment portal is provided as an opportunity for comments, commendations, and other information regarding the agency’s quality of service or other information relevant to the accreditation process.

IMPORTANT: CALEA is not an investigatory body and subsequently the public portal should not be used to submit information for such purposes. Additionally, there will be no response other than acknowledgment of submissions; however, the information will be considered in context to its relevancy to compliance with standards and the tenets of CALEA® Accreditation.
