Accreditation Public Comment Portal

Calea Badge

The Lake Area Technical College Law Enforcement program has been accredited since 2020 by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA®). The accreditation requires agencies to comply with state-of-the-art standards in four basic areas: policy and procedures, administration, operations, and support services.  

CALEA® maintains an access portal which allows for comment and feedback with regard to candidate agencies seeking initial accreditation or reaccreditation status. The link for this portal can be found on the CALEA® website at https://cimrs2.calea.org/968. Access is provided as an opportunity for comments, commendations, and other information regarding the agency’s quality of service or other information relevant to the accreditation process.

Considered the gold standard in public safety, CALEA® accreditation provides law enforcement agencies a framework of best practices and standards to ensure accountability within their agencies, reduce liability exposure and promote effective resource management. Accreditation is earned for a four-year period that requires routine assessments that represent an on-going obligation to continue the quest for excellence by achieving compliance to all applicable standards and any future standards.
