The Mooresville Police Department is scheduled for a virtual onsite assessment as part of a program to maintain national accreditation by verifying that the department meets professional standards.

Administered by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc. (CALEA), the accreditation program requires agencies to comply with standards in four basic areas: policy and procedure, administration, operations, and support services.

Agency employees and the public are invited to offer comments by calling (704) 658-9050 on Monday, December 13, from 1 until 3 p.m. Comments will be taken by the Assessment Team.

As part of the virtual on-site assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments during a public information session on Monday, December 13, at 5 p.m. The session will be conducted at Mooresville’s Town Hall, located at 413 North Main Street, Mooresville.

Telephone comments, as well as appearances at the public information session, are limited to five minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with CALEA’s standards. A list of titles of all the CALEA standards is provided to the public on the CALEA website at https://www.calea.org/node/11406.

If you would like to request information about a specific standard, you may do so by calling the Mooresville Police Department’s Accreditation Manager at 704-658-9050 or by emailing Jennifer Harris at jhharris@mooresvillenc.gov.

Anyone wishing to submit written comments about the Mooresville Police Department’s ability to comply with the standards for accreditation may send them to the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement, Inc. (CALEA), 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320, Gainesville, VA 20155 or email calea@calea.org.
