Police Department to Obtain Accreditation

In November 2021, Brookhaven Council gave approval to the Brookhaven Police Department to obtain the Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation. Brookhaven Police received a state grant of approximately $40,000 to assist them with this process.

What is the Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation Program?

The Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association introduced the Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation Program to the Commonwealth in July 2001.

Accreditation is a progressive and time-proven way of helping institutions evaluate and improve their overall performance. The cornerstone of this strategy lies in the promulgation of standards containing a clear statement of professional objectives. Participating administrators then conduct a thorough analysis to determine how existing operations can be adapted to meet these objectives. When the procedures are in place, a team of independent professionals is assigned to verify that all applicable standards have been successfully implemented. The process culminates with a decision by an authoritative body that the institution is worthy of accreditation.

The Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation Program was designed and developed by professional law enforcement executives to provide a reasonable and cost-effective plan for the professionalization of law enforcement agencies within the Commonwealth.

The Benefits:

  • Establishes a credible framework for evaluating agency practices and procedures
  • Reduces agency risk and exposure to lawsuits
  • Decreases some liability insurance expenditures
  • Improves law enforcement – community relations
  • Increases employee input, interaction, and confidence in the agency
