Share post:

A TEAM OF assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc. (CALEA) will arrive in Barbados on Sunday to examine all aspects of the Royal Barbados Police Force’s policy and procedures, management, operations, and support services.
Members of the public are invited to offer comments by calling 430-7269 on Monday between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Police public relations officer Inspector David Welch said members of the assessment team will take these phone calls.
These telephone comments are limited to ten minutes and must address the ability of the Force to comply with CALEA’s standards.  
The local contact for the assessment process is Assistant Commissioner of Police Oral Williams who is the RBPF’s accreditation manager. He can be reached at 430-7115.
Anyone wishing to submit written comments about the ability of the Royal Barbados Police to comply with the standards for accreditation may send them to the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc. (CALEA), 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320 Gainesville, Virginia 201559.
The CALEA assessment team comprises law enforcement practitioners from criminal justice agencies in the United States of America. The assessors will review written materials, interview people, and visit offices and other places where compliance can be witnessed. There are 482 standards that law enforcement agencies must meet to obtain accredited status.
The members of the assessment team are Chief of Police Charles Walters of the Gwinnett Police Department and Lieutenant Rae Ferguson (Retired) of the Ashville Police Department.
Once the Commission’s Assessors complete their review of the agency, they will report to the full Commission, which will decide if the agency is granted accredited status. (PR)
