Accreditation team invites public comments

The Buena Park Police Department, under the direction of Police Chief Corey S. Sianez, is an accredited agency through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). The Buena Park Police Department is scheduled for a virtual site-based assessment as part of a program to achieve national re-accreditation by verifying that it meets professional standards.

Chief Sianez is quoted saying, “Buena Park Police Department is proud to be a CALEA accredited agency. Being accredited improves the quality of service that we provide to our community and ensures that we maintain the highest standards and professionalism possible. We want to continue to be a leader in law enforcement and we constantly strive to enhance our reputation while maintaining the public’s confidence.”

The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies requires agencies to comply with state-of-the-art standards in four basic areas: policy and procedures, administration, operations, and support services.

As part of the site-based assessment, the Buena Park Police Department invites agency employees, and members of the public to participate in a public information session to offer comments by calling 714-562-3881 on Tuesday, May 12, 2020, between the hours of 2:00 PM and 4:00 PM. CALEA Assessors will be available at that time to take your comments.

Comments are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with CALEA’s standards. Anyone wishing to review the standards may contact the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement, Inc. (CALEA) via their website at https://www.calea.org/contact-us. Individuals may contact Accreditation Manager Lieutenant Tamra Banks at (714) 612-3382 for further information.
