CALEA Accreditation Public Comment Portal

CALEA is the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. The Richmond Heights Police Department first became CALEA accredited in 2008 and has remained accredited since that time.

In order to receive accreditation, the police department must submit to an annual policy and file assessment which are conducted by a client service manager off-site. Every four years, a site-based assessment occurs where CALEA assessors travel to the agency to determine if re-accreditation will be awarded. Each assessment includes reviews of written policies, procedures, actual practices, and inspection of city equipment and facilities. As one of the elite police agencies in the United States to have achieved advanced accredited status, the Richmond Heights Police Department takes our commitment to service and community to the next level. Our vision is to maintain the highest standards of excellence in all facets of policing. The department strives to be considered by our community and our profession as one of the premier law enforcement agencies in the nation.

CALEA Public Comment Portal
The purpose of this public comment portal is to receive comments regarding the Richmond Heights Police Department’s compliance with CALEA standards, engagement in the service community, delivery of public safety services, and overall candidacy for accredited status. These comments can be in the form of commendations or concerns. The overall intent of the accreditation process is to provide us and CALEA with information to support continuous improvement, as well as foster the pursuit of professional excellence.

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.
