accredidation logoIn April 2016, the Morrisville Police Department was re-accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).  We received our initial accreditation status in November 2009.

Accreditation is a process in which a law enforcement agency voluntarily complies to over 400 professional standards defined by the Commission. The standards focus on department policies, and operational procedures such as police training, use of force, emergency preparedness, and accountability. Compliance with these standards means a law enforcement agency both follows a code of conduct recognized by its law enforcement peers, the legal system and the public and also meets the best professional requirements and practices for agencies nationwide.
