CPD EARNS TLEA  ACCREDITATION STATUS
In a special ceremony, during the Clinton City Council meeting this week, Maryville Police Chief Tony Crisp presented the Tennessee Law Enforcement Accreditation (TLEA) certificate to the Clinton Police Department.

To achieve accreditation with TLEA, an agency voluntarily submits to a process of enhancing the agency’s professionalism and effectiveness utilizing more than 160 law enforcement standards and participating in a thorough on-site assessment. The standards address a variety of areas including organizational, operational, safety, and budget management practices.  Clinton Police Department successfully accomplished TLEA accreditation by meeting criteria that measured the professionalism, organizational, and overall readiness in law enforcement policy and procedures.  The program is intended to encourage cooperation, recognize professional standing, develop professional services and ensure public safety throughout the State of Tennessee.

“The standard of excellence that is met through this process is to be admired. We are proud to recognize the hard work of this department and its staff,” stated Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police President, Jeff Hughes.

The Tennessee Law Enforcement Accreditation Program is a voluntary program that recognizes the excellence and professional achievement in law enforcement agencies across the State of Tennessee.  The program began in 2010 through the hard work and efforts of the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police (TACP). There are more than 400 law enforcement agencies across the state.. but only 65 are involved in the state accreditation program. Forty three agencies have achieved accreditation with twenty four having achieved re-accreditation. It takes commitment, dedication, and hard work from the agency head, agency personnel and community leaders to meet the standards prescribed by the program. The time commitment involves up to a three-year process.  The TLEA program is a valuable and cost effective way to enhance overall agency effectiveness, professionalism and risk management.
