The Tulsa Police Department has announced they will be undergoing an assessment beginning Sunday from the Commission of Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies as they look to maintain a reputation as a high-level police department.
The assessment will look at policies, procedures, management, operations and support services, TPD says. The assessment is a voluntary process the department is undertaking.
The TPD first attained accreditation from the CALEA in 2005.
"By meeting or exceeding these national benchmarks of efficiency and effectiveness, citizens can be assured that the Tulsa Police Department will continue to provide quality policing services. We are committed to remaining an innovative and professional police department," said chief Chuck Jordan with TPD.
Community members are invited to attend part of the assessment at a public information session on Monday. There, the public can offer up their own comments. The meeting will be held from 6-8 p.m. at 600 Civic Center.
If you cannot make the meeting, you can call 918-596-1068 from 1-3 p.m. Monday to address the department's ability to live up to CALEA standards.
