|CSUF Schedules Public Hearing for Reaccreditation of University Police
July 31, 2007 :: No. 15
Members of the community are invited to attend and offer comments regarding Cal State Fullerton’s University Police Department at a Monday, Aug. 6, public hearing.
The forum is part of an on-site assessment by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc. (CALEA). The assessment team will be examining all aspects of the department’s policy and procedures, management, operations and support services to verify that the campus police department meets the commission’s standards.
The public hearing is part of a voluntary process to gain reaccreditation – a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence, according to University Police Chief Judi King. Accreditation is awarded for three years; Cal State Fullerton’s police force was originally accredited in 2001 following a similar procedure.
The 4 p.m. hearing will be held in the Academic Senate Chambers on the east side of Titan Shops. Individuals who are not able to attend, but who would like to provide comments are invited to do so by calling 657-278-4775 between 1 and 3 p.m. Monday, Aug. 6.
Telephone comments and appearances at the public hearing are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with CALEA’s standards. For a copy of the standards, contact Debbie Ellis of University Police at 657-278-4814.
Those who wish to offer written comments about CSUF’s University Police Department may write to the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc., 10306 Eaton Place, Suite 320, Fairfax, Virginia 22030-2201.
