The City of Carbondale Police Department is scheduled for an on-site assessment on November 16th and 17th, 2010 as part of a program to achieve accreditation by verifying the Department meets model professional standards developed by the Illinois Law Enforcement Agency Accreditation Council.
Administered by the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police, the Illinois Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (ILEAP) requires agencies to comply with standards in four basic areas: administration, operations, personnel and training.
As part of the on-site assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments by sending an email directly to the assessors at ILEAP@ci.carbondale.il.us between now and November 19, 2010.
Agency employees and the public are also invited to offer comments by calling (618) 457-3200 x460 on Wednesday, November 17, 2010, between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. All relevant comments will be taken by the Assessment Team. Telephone comments are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agencies ability to comply with ILEAP's standards. A copy of the standards is available at the City of Carbondale Police Department during business hours, or by contacting Accreditation Manager Lt. Heather Reno at (618) 457-3200 extension #448.
