MCPD Embraces Accreditation

MCPD Embraces Accreditation

The Manassas City Police Department is "all in" on accreditation!

Monday, February 12, 2024/Categories: Podcast

The Manassas City Police Department (MCPD) complies with over 460 standards set forth by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). These standards drive department policies from mental health response to use of force; from evidence handling to volunteering; from uniforms to towing. 

In this episode of the The VML Voice, we hear from MCPD Chief (and interim City Manager) Douglas Keen and Accreditation Manager Mason Riggs on how CALEA ensures that the department’s policies and behaviors are fair, safe, and effective for its employees and residents.
