CALEA

Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies

The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA), was established as an independent accrediting authority in 1979 by the four major law enforcement membership associations: International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP); National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE); National Sheriff’s Association (NSA); and Police Executive Research Forum (PERF). The Executive Directors of these four associations appoint members to the Commission annually; an endorsement requires a majority vote for each appointment. Purpose of the Commission: To Develop a set of law enforcement standards; Administer an accreditation process through which law enforcement agencies could demonstrate voluntarily. They meet professionally-recognized criteria for excellence in management and service delivery. Successful completion of the accreditation program requires commitment from all levels of the organization, starting with the Chief Executive Officer. The Mundelein Police Department achieved our initial accreditation in 2001, and was awarded our fifth re-accreditation in November 2013 achieving Gold Standard recognition. Gold Standard review is offered to agencies that have excelled during previous accreditations (Reaccreditation occurs every three years). Achieving and maintaining our accredited status awarded by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) is validation that we are providing high-quality service to our community using nationally recognized, professional standards, are committed to the process, and continue to maintain a high level of excellence agency wide.
