The Honolulu Police Department’s (HPD) Training Academy is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of a program to achieve reaccreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).
The reaccreditation program requires law enforcement training academies to comply with professional standards set forth by the Public Safety Academy Accreditation Program. Standards are divided into four basic areas: policies and procedures, administration, operations, and support services.
As part of the on-site assessment, the public is invited to offer comments by calling 723-8339 on Sunday, December 14, 2008 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Telephone comments will be limited to 10 minutes and must address the HPD Training Academy’s ability to comply with CALEA reaccreditation standards.
Persons wanting to submit written comments may write to: Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, 10302 Eaton Place, Suite 100, Fairfax, Virginia 22030-2215.
