A local police department is preparing to undergo an assessment. The Anniston Police Department will receive an inspection from a team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. The team will arrive on December 4th and examine all aspects of the department’s policy and procedures, management, operations, and support services. Verification by the team that the Anniston Police Department meets the Commission’s state-of-the-art standards is part of a voluntary process to gain accreditation. As part of the assessment a public information session will be held at the Anniston City Meeting Center on December 5th.
