A “State Accredited” Agency
Kentucky Association of Chief’s of Police ACCREDITATION PROGRAM
The Kentucky Association of Chief’s of Police Accreditation Program is intended to provide law enforcement agencies of the Commonwealth with an avenue for demonstrating that they meet commonly accepted professional standards for efficient and effective operations. Law Enforcement executives who choose to have their agencies accredited under this program have examined all aspects of their operations. They have made conscious decisions about policies and procedures that fit the law enforcement requirements of their jurisdictions and have implemented those policies and trained their employees in their use. Accreditation reflects that the agency was carefully measured against an established set of standards and has met or exceeded professionally accepted practices in law enforcement. The Alexandria Police Department received full accreditation status in July 2002, its second five-year accrediation status in July 2007, and a third certificate in July 2012. The agency today stands as one of the most professional agencies in the state as it continues to grow with the community it serves.
