CORNWALL – Cornwall police will be under the microscope next month as part of a law enforcement accreditation.
The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) will come to the Seaway City Dec. 6 to examine police procedures, management, operations and support services.
There is also a chance for the public to give feedback during a public meeting Dec. 7.
It’s being held at the Seaway Valley Community Health Center, across from city hall on Pitt Street, at 6 p.m.
If you can’t make it, you can call 613-933-5000 extension 2691 from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. and leave your comments with a member of the assessment team. Comments are limited to 10 minutes.
The operational assessment to see of the force meets 189 CALEA standards is voluntary to get a “highly prized recognition of public safety professional excellence,” said Cornwall Police Chief Dan Parkinson.
You can pick up a copy of the standards and more information at the police station on Pitt Street.
