The "Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies" gives the Nebraska State Patrol its "Law Enforcement Accreditation" for the sixth time.
The Patrol has been continually accredited by CALEA since 2004.
“This recognition is the result of a thorough review process by CALEA evaluators,” said Colonel John Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “CALEA accreditation demonstrates not only that NSP’s policies meet the rigorous standards held by CALEA, but also that NSP personnel are living up to those standards in their work across Nebraska.”
The Nebraska patrol received its reaccreditation following a process that included a self-assessment of policies and procedures, in-depth comparison of operations to CALEA’s public safety standards, and a complete assessment by evaluators.
During the process, an agency must prove compliance with approximately 500 standards for law enforcement.
Approximately 10 percent of all U.S. law enforcement agencies hold a "Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies" accreditation.
It lasts for four years with annual assessments during that time.
