DOVER, Del.— The Dover Police Department has been re-accredited by the Commission of Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies.

CALEA's stated purpose is to uphold a body of standards developed by public safety professionals, improve delivery of public safety services, establish and administer the accreditation process, and recognize professional excellence in public safety.

“The body of standards is created using source materials voluntarily submitted by pre-existing state programs and by many state and local law enforcement agencies nationwide,” the Dover Police Department said in a news release. "The 479 standards are based on “case law, state statutes, administrative mandates, model policies and professional management materials.”

Benefits of accreditation for the Dover Police Department include: officer improvement and public safety; high-risk management issue resolution; the promotion of accountability; the promotion of operational efficiency through policy development; minimizing an agency's exposure to liability; enhancing the reputation of the agency, which attracts the best qualified candidates for employment; and increasing public confidence.
