The KACP Law Enforcement Accreditation Program is a process of helping law enforcement institutions evaluate and improve their overall performance by setting standards to be met through a clear statement of objectives.  When the procedures are in place, a team of independent authoritative professionals will determine that all standards have successfully been met, and that the institution is worthy of accreditation. The accreditation objectives are:

*Provides an independent means of evaluation of agency operations.

*Provides a basis to correction in the agencies operations before they become public problems.

*Requires that agencies commit policies and procedures in writing.

*Provides a norm for an agency to judge its performance.

*Has the potential to reduce liability insurance costs.

*Promotes accountability among agency personnel and the evenhanded application of policies.

*Enhances the reputation of the agency thereby helping to attract the most qualified applicants for employment.

*Minimizes the agency's exposure to liability, reducing vicarious liability lawsuits.

*Builds a stronger defense against lawsuits and citizen complaints.

*Increases the community's confidence in it's police/sheriff department.

*Recognizes agencies for meeting standards of excellence.

According to KACP, Accredidation reflects that the agency was carefully measured against an established set of standards and has met or exceeded professionally accepted practices in law enforcement.

A formal presentation of the accreditation certificate will be conducted in August during the KACP Annual Conference.
