[ARCHIVED] CALEA Accreditation Awards for Madison Police and Emergency Communications

CALEA 2017

On March 25, 2017, the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA®) awarded the Madison Police Department their second Advanced Law Enforcement Accreditation. This award was bestowed upon the Madison Police Department at the spring CALEA Conference in Mobile, Alabama.

This award is the culmination of a process that was put in motion when Chief John “Jack” Drumm arrived at the Madison Police Department in January 2010. Since that time, the Department has revised its policy manual, adhered to the best practices in law enforcement and received initial Accreditation in the Spring of 2014. Since Initial Accreditation, the Department worked tirelessly to demonstrate compliance with CALEA Standards. In December 2016, the Department again hosted two national assessors who arrived at the Madison Po-lice Department to inspect the facilities, meet with officers and staff, and review the 481 files necessary for CALEA Advanced Law Enforcement Accreditation.

Additionally, the Madison Emergency Communications Center also hosted a national assessor who reviewed an additional 106 Communications Standards for the CALEA Public Safety Communications Accreditation.

Following the On-Site Assessment, the Madison Police Department and Madison Emergency Communications Center were recommended for Accreditation, but faced one additional interview with members of the CALEA Commission. Chief Drumm, Captain Joseph Race and Communications Supervisor Edmund Brunt successfully responded to all questions asked and the Madison Police Department’s Advanced Accreditation and the Madison Emergency Communications Center’s Public Safety Communications Accreditation were granted. This distinction is the first of its kind in Connecticut and one on only 33 in the United States to hold this Law Enforcement and Communications dual Accreditation.
