FSU Police Department Reaccreditation Assessment 2017

May 8, 2017




Florida State University Police Department Scheduled for Reaccreditation Assessment


The Florida State University Police Department is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of a program to achieve reaccreditation by verifying it continues to meet professional standards.  The assessment is scheduled at the agency during July 11-13, 2017.


Administered by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation, Inc. (CFA), the accreditation program requires that agencies comply with approximately 260 professional standards.  A team of assessors will examine all aspects of the agency’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services.  The assessors will review written materials, interview individuals, and visit offices and other places where compliance can be witnessed. 


As part of the on-site assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments to the assessment team.  A copy of the standards are available through Lt. Marie Clark, Florida State University Police Department, 850-644-1940 or email: mclark2@fsu.edu.


For more information regarding CFA or for persons wishing to offer written comments about the Florida State University Police Department’s ability to meet the standards of accreditation, please write to: CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida 32302 or email to info@flaccreditation.org.


Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full Commission, which will then decide if the agency is to maintain accredited status.  Verification by the team that the Florida State University Police Department meets the Commission’s standards is part of a voluntary process to gain or maintain accreditation.
