A team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) will visit Georgia Tech to examine all aspects of its Police Department’s policy and procedures, management, operations, and support services.
The assessment team’s verification that the Georgia Tech Police Department meets the Commission's standards is part of a voluntary process to gain accreditation—and a recognition of public safety professional excellence.
As part of the on-site assessment, agency personnel and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session on March 26 at 4:30 p.m. in room 152 of the Clough Undergraduate Learning Center.
Individuals who cannot attend the public information session but would still like to provide comments to the assessment team may do so by telephone. The public is invited to call 404-385-3269 on March 26 between the hours of 1:00 and 3:00 p.m.
Comments are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency's ability to comply with CALEA standards. A copy of the standards is available at the Georgia Tech Police Department.
Persons wishing to offer written comments about the Georgia Tech Police Department's ability to meet the standards for accreditation may write to: Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement, Inc. (CALEA), 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320 Gainesville, Virginia 20155.
