A team of as­ses­sors from the Com­mis­sion on Ac­cred­i­ta­tion for Law En­force­ment Agen­cies (CALEA) will ar­rive Aug. 1 to ex­am­ine all as­pects of the Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice poli­cies and pro­ce­dures, man­age­ment, op­er­a­tions and sup­port ser­vices as part of the agency’s con­tin­ued ef­forts to main­tain its ac­cred­i­ta­tion. The sher­iff’s of­fice is seek­ing its sixth re-ac­cred­i­ta­tion.

“The pur­pose of this visit by the team of as­ses­sors is to con­firm the Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice con­tin­ues to meet the com­mis­sion’s stan­dards and is part of a vol­un­tary process to main­tain CALEA ac­cred­i­ta­tion,” said Sher­iff Troy D. Berry (D) in a press re­lease.

Dur­ing the on-site as­sess­ment, agency em­ploy­ees and mem­bers of the com­mu­nity are in­vited to com­ment at a pub­lic in­for­ma­tion ses­sion 7 p.m. Mon­day, Aug. 1, in the train­ing class­room lo­cated at the Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice Head­quar­ters, 6915 Crain High­way, La Plata.

Any per­son who can­not speak at the pub­lic in­for­ma­tion ses­sion but would still like to pro­vide com­ments to the as­sess­ment team may do so by tele­phone. Calls will be taken by the as­sess­ment team at 301-609-6517 from 2-4 p.m. Tues­day, Aug. 2. Tele­phone com­ments as well as ap­pear­ances at the pub­lic in­for­ma­tion ses­sion are lim­ited to 10 min­utes and must ad­dress the agency’s abil­ity to com­ply with CALEA stan­dards. The CALEA stan­dards are avail­able for re­view from the of­fice of plan­ning and ac­cred­i­ta­tion at the sher­iff’s of­fice head­quar­ters. The plan­ning and ac­cred­i­ta­tion of­fice may be con­tacted at 301-6096419.

Any­one wish­ing to of­fer writ­ten com­ments about the Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice’s abil­ity to meet the stan­dards for ac­cred­i­ta­tion may write to John Gre­gory, re­gional pro­gram man­ager, at the Com­mis­sion on Ac­cred­i­ta­tion for Law En­force­ment Agen­cies Inc., 13575 Heath­cote Blvd., Suite 320, Gainesville, VA 20155.

“CALEA as­ses­sors are law en­force­ment pro­fes­sion­als from agen­cies lo­cated some dis­tance away in or­der to main­tain the ob­jec­tiv­ity of the as­sess­ment process,” said Danny John­son, the agency’s deputy direc­tor of plan­ning and ac­cred­i­ta­tion, in the press re­lease.

The as­ses­sors this year are Ma­jor Paul Baggett, Polk County Sher­iff’s Of­fice, Lake­land, Fla., and Lt. Vir­gil Hub­bard, Knoxville Police Depart­ment, Knoxville, Tenn. They will re­view writ­ten ma­te­ri­als, in­ter­view in­di­vid­u­als and visit of­fices and other places where com­pli­ance with CALEA stan­dards can be ver­i­fied. Once the com­mis­sion’s as­ses­sors com­plete their re­view of the agency, they re­port to the full com­mis­sion, which will then de­cide if the agency is to be re-ac­cred­ited.

Ac­cred­i­ta­tion is for three years, dur­ing which the agency must sub­mit an­nual re­ports af­firm­ing con­tin­ued com­pli­ance with those stan­dards un­der which it was ac­cred­ited. For more in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing CALEA, call 800-368-3757 or 703-3524225, or go to www.calea.org.
