Accreditation

The Plumstead Township Police Department is currently in the process of obtaining accreditation alongside 1,117 other law enforcement agencies within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

What is Accreditation?

Accreditation through the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association is a progressive and time-proven way of helping police departments evaluate and improve their overall performance. The cornerstone of the strategy lies in the formation of standards containing a clear statement of professional objectives. Participating administrators then conduct a thorough analysis to determine how existing operations can be adapted to meet these objectives. When the procedures are in place, a team of independent professionals is assigned to verify that all applicable standards have been successfully implemented. The process concludes with a decision by an authoritative body that the institution is worthy of accreditation.
