A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will arrive on August 24 to examine all aspects of the Flagler County Sheriff Office policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services. The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office has to comply with approximately 240 standards in order to receive Accredited Status. Many of the standards are critical to life, health, safety issues and best practices.

As part of the on-site assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team. Citizens may review standards at http://www.flaccreditation.org/standards.htm.

Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full Commission, which then determines if the agency is to receive Reaccreditation. The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office accreditation is for 3 years.

“Verification by the accreditation team that the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office meets the Commission’s standards is part of a voluntary process to maintain accreditation–a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “We welcome and encourage the publics comments and participation in this process.

Sheriff Staly also serves as an appointed member of the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation.

For more information regarding CFA or for persons wishing to offer written comments about the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office ability to meet the Standards of Accreditation, please write to: CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida 32302, or email to flaccreditation@fdle.state.fl.us.
