JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – The Johns Creek Police Department is seeking re-accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc. (CALEA).

Part of the on-site evaluation by a CALEA assessment team includes a public information session Monday, April 22, at 6 p.m. in the courtroom of the Johns Creek Police/Municipal Court complex, 11445 Johns Creek Parkway.

Members of the community and JCPD employees unable to make the April 22 meeting are invited to offer comments by phone at 678-474-1545 Sunday, April 21, between 3 and 5 p.m.

Telephone comments as well as appearances at the public information session are limited to 10 minutes and must address the JCPD’s ability to comply with CALEA’s standards.

“Accreditation by CALEA can assure the public that their police department is being run well and that they can expect high standards of professionalism,” said JCPD Chief Ed Densmore. “We look forward to hearing comments from the public as we go through the process.”

A copy of the standards is available at the Johns Creek Police/Municipal Court complex or by visiting www.calea.org/content/law-enforcement-program-standards. For information, call Cheri Akselsen at 678-474-1575.

Written comments about the Johns Creek Police Department’s ability to meet the standards for advanced accreditation should be sent to: Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement, Inc., 13575 Heathcote Blvd. Suite 320, Gainesville, Va. 20155; or emailed to calea@calea.org.
