A team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc. (CALEA), will arrive Oct. 22 to examine all aspects of MUSC Department of Public Safety's policy and procedures, management, operations and support services.
Verification by the team that the Department of Public Safety meets the commission's state-of-the-art standards is part of a voluntary process to maintain its current accredited status — a highly-prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence, according to MUSC director of Public Safety's Anthony Dunbar.
As a part of the onsite assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments by calling 792-3014 between 1 and 3 p.m. on Oct. 24. Comments will be taken by the assessment team. Telephone comments are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency's ability to comply with CALEA's standards. A copy of the standards is available at the MUSC Department of Public Safety, 101 Doughty St., Charleston S.C., 29425 or contact Debbie Underwood at 792-1986.
Written comments may be sent to the CALEA Offices, 13575 Heathcote Blvd., Suite 320, Gainesville, Va., 20155 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
