Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Program












NJSACOP – Accreditation

The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA®) is the premier national accrediting body for law enforcement and public safety agencies in the United States.  

CALEA was created in 1979 as a credentialing authority through the joint efforts of law enforcement’s major executive associations:

  • International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP)
  • National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE)
  • National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA)
  • Police Executive Research Forum (PERF)

Represented in every state, and in foreign countries such as Mexico, CALEA sets the standard for excellence in policing and public safety.  CALEA has accreditation programs in the following areas:

Are you interested in CALEA accreditation?  Are you a member of a CALEA agency looking for assistance or networking opportunities?  Are you a CALEA accreditation manager? Does your agency want to see the benefits of accreditation without being involved in an official accreditation process?  If any of these questions pertain to you, we can help!
