Members of the community are invited to offer comments via an online public portal as part of an on-site assessment of policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services for both the Naperville Police Department and the Naperville Emergency Communications Center. The assessment is part of a re-accreditation process through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA).
Interested community members can visit the CALEA Law Enforcement comment portal HERE (Naperville Police Department) and the CALEA Communications comment portal HERE (Naperville Public Safety Answering Point) to provide information about the agency’s quality of service or other information pertaining to the re-accreditation process. Comments made to the online public portal should only address the agency’s ability to comply with CALEA’s standards.
Learn more about CALEA standards and accreditation on the City of Naperville website at www.naperville.il.us/NPDAccreditation where the following information provides a brief history of the process:
The Naperville Police Department is an internationally accredited law enforcement agency. Successful accreditation makes a statement to residents, law enforcement colleagues and other professionals that the Naperville Police Department meets the very highest standards. The agency was first accredited in the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) law enforcement program on Nov. 21, 1992, and received re-accreditation status for the 9th time in 2020. In addition, our Communications Section has been accredited through CALEA since July 28, 2001 and received its 7th accreditation award in 2020.
