CALEA Accreditation

CALEA, or The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc., is a National credentialing authority, based in the United States, whose primary mission is to accredit public safety agencies, namely law enforcement agencies, training academies, communications centers, and campus public safety agencies.  The CALEA Accreditation process focuses on standards that provide best practices related to life, health, and safety procedures for the Burlington Township Police Department.  The program provides a framework for addressing high risk issues within a contemporary environment, and ensures officers are prepared to meet basic community service expectations and prepared to manage critical events.

The Burlington Township Police Department received its initial accreditation on March 25, 2000. Since then, it has been reaccredited 7 times (every 3 years).  During the reaccreditation process, a team of law enforcement professionals perform an on-site inspection and evaluation of the agency.  The Burlington Township Police Department is 1 of only 22 CALEA accredited agencies in the State of New Jersey, and 1 of just 8 Municipal Law Enforcement Agencies.
