Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation Invites Public Comments @ 21 Jun 2022
(Citrus County, FL) A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will arrive on August 2, 2022, to examine all aspects of the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office’s (CCSO) policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services. CCSO has to comply with numerous standards in order to receive accredited status. Many of the standards are critical to life, health, safety issues, and best practices.

The assessment team is composed of assessors from similar agencies. The assessors will review written materials, interview individuals, and visit offices and other areas where compliance can be observed.

As part of the assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team. A copy of the standards manual is available on the CFA website at www.flaccreditation.org under the standards tab.

Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they report to the full Commission, which then determines if the agency is to receive accredited or reaccredited status - accreditation is valid for three years. Verification by the team that an agency meets the Commission’s standards is part of a voluntary process to gain or maintain accreditation--a highly prized recognition of professional excellence.

For more information regarding CFA or for persons wishing to offer written comments about the agency’s ability to meet the standards of accreditation, please send correspondence to:

CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida, 32302, or email to flaccreditation@fdle.state.fl.us

Assessors will be on site from August 2nd through August 4th.
