WOODSTOCK POLICE RECEIVES NATIONAL ACCREDITATIONNovember 28, 2017 – At last night’s Mayor and City
Council meeting, Chief Moss announced that the Woodstock Police Department
received its accreditation from CALEA (Commission on Accreditation for Law
Enforcement Agencies). This achievement demonstrates the department’s
commitment to professional excellence in policy and practice.
On November 18, 2017, Woodstock’s Police Chief Calvin W. Moss
and Assistant Chief Kevin Culpepper attended the CALEA Conference, held in
Jacksonville, FL, where the Woodstock Police Department was awarded its
Accreditation. This process involved meeting or exceeding 177 standards,
the culmination of self-evaluations, and was concluded by a review from
independent assessors that took place in June of this year as well as a review
by CALEA’s Commissioners.
The Woodstock Police Department joins with just 20% of law
enforcement agencies its size in the nation in receiving this distinguished
honor. Further, the Woodstock Police Department is among the just 5% of law
enforcement agencies in the State of Georgia that are both State Certified and
Nationally Accredited law enforcement agencies.
“Our mission is to pursue professional excellence and we are
committed to doing just that” says Chief Moss. “This honor represents
the best in class service our team strives to provide to Woodstock, its
citizens, business owners, and guests” he continues
The Woodstock Police Department was previously accredited by
CALEA from 2001-2004.
