The Department’s accreditation efforts will be controlled through the Audit, Policy and Research Section. All accreditation requests that are made by the Audit, Policy and Research Section will be viewed as coming from the Office of the Chief of Police.
A. The Audit, Policy and Research Section (APRS) will request information throughout the Department from sworn and non-sworn employees via Department e-mail. Follow up meetings and phone calls may also be made to clarify the request and assist in the process of gathering the needed information.
B. Once an employee receives an accreditation email request they will follow the instructions on the email regarding acknowledgement, forwarding (if necessary), and response. If the email is forwarded, the same acknowledgement and response procedures will be followed by each employee that receives the email.
C. The email will have a ‘required by date’. The requested information must be supplied by the required date. More time may be allowed if approved via email by the APRS Captain.
D. The APRS Captain will submit a monthly report showing active requests and those that are overdue to the Deputy Chief of Staff.
E. Once a completed request is returned, the request information and personnel involved in completing the request will be entered into a database. All requests for accreditation will be tracked this way.
