WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The Purdue University Police Department is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of a program to achieve accreditation by verifying it meets professional standards.
Administered by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc. (CALEA), the accreditation program requires agencies to comply with state-of-the-art standards in four basic areas: policy and procedures, administration, operations and support services.
This accreditation assessment will be held July 26-28.
As part of the assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session at 4 p.m. Monday (July 27). The session will be in the conference room at Purdue University Parking Services, 1404 W. State St., West Lafayette Indiana.
Agency employees and members of the community are also invited to offer comments by calling 765-496-8371, or 765-496-8364, between the hours of 1-3 p.m. on Monday. Comments will be taken by the assessment team.
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's standards. A copy of the standards is available at the Purdue Police Department. The local contact is Lt. Matthew Wietbrock, 765-494-8221
