Baltimore County police to hold forum for public comment

August 09, 2005|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

As part of its accreditation process, the Baltimore County Police Department is inviting employees and the public to comment at an information session at 7 p.m. Monday at the Public Safety Building, 700 E. Joppa Road in Towson.

The session will be led by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc., an international program that will conduct an onsite assessment of the department Sunday through Aug. 18.

Comments will be limited to 10 minutes and must address the department's compliance with one or more of the commission's four standards: policy and procedures, administration, operations and support services.

Anyone preferring to comment by phone can call the commission's on-site assessors between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesday at 410-887-4937. Written comments can be sent to the commission at 10302 Eaton Place, Suite 100, Fairfax, VA 22030-2215.

The county Police Department was first accredited in 1984 and must be re-assessed every three years to maintain accreditation.
