Illinois State Police undergoing reaccreditation

Posted:

Springfield, Ill. (AP) -- The Illinois State Police is undergoing reaccreditation.

 

The agency announced Monday it will be assessed by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. It's the state police's seventh time being assessment by the group. The force will be rated on policy and procedures, management, operations and support services. It has to comply with 364 standards to maintain accreditation.

 

The assessment runs from April 14 to 17. Illinois State Police was the first state police agency that the commission accredited. That happened in 1986. The commission's accreditation is valid for three years.

 

State Police Director Hiram Grau says accreditation "sets the tone for excellence and ensures that police service is administered efficiently and professionally."
