The City of Kirkwood has completed the three-year CALEA Law Enforcement Accreditation process and was awarded its accreditation certificate at a ceremony in Huntsville, Alabama, on May 4, 2019.
The City’s Police Department embarked on the accreditation process in January 2016. Over the next three years, they completed a self-assessment process that evaluated policies, procedures, and practices, comparing them against 189 best practices standards established by CALEA – the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement agencies.
