For the second time, the Riley County Police Department was recognized for “outstanding performance”, and received honors, at the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies conference. The department maintained their Meritorious Service standing, and was awarded Advanced Law Enforcement Accreditation with Excellence.
Only six out of the 125 agencies being re accredited at the conference were presented with this award.
In December of 2012, the department underwent a rigorous three-day on-site assessment process, where assessors inspected the Department, interviewed employees, reviewed files and held a public information session. This was done to determine that the department fully met the requirements of the 480 national standards.
