CALEA Accreditation#

Fort Collins Police Services is participating in the CALEA (The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies) Accreditation process. As part of this process, we provide an opportunity for public feedback via the CALEA portal which can be located here:

The purpose of this public portal is to receive comments regarding our compliance with CALEA standards, engagement in the service community, delivery of public safety services, and overall candidacy for accredited status. These comments can be in the form of commendations or concerns. The overall intent of the accreditation process is to provide our agency with information to support continuous improvement, as well as foster our pursuit of professional excellence.

It is important to know that CALEA is not an investigatory body and subsequently, the public portal should not be used to submit information for such purposes. Additionally, there will be no response other than acknowledgement to submissions; however, the information will be considered in context to its relevancy to compliance with standards and the tenets of CALEA Accreditation.

Standard titles may be viewed on the CALEA website: Law Enforcement - Standards Titles

The level of accreditation Fort Collins Police Services is participating in includes only those applicable standards that are in bold.

If you have any questions about our agency, standards, or the process, please email:
