Public Hearing Set on University Police Reaccreditation

Campus and community members are invited to attend and provide comments regarding Cal State Fullerton's University Police Department at a 4 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 9, public information session.

The session will be held in the Emergency Operations Center of the University Police Building, 800 N. State College Blvd., Fullerton, 92831.

A team from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) Inc. will conduct the meeting as part of the reaccreditation process for the campus law enforcement agency. The assessment team seeks input in four areas: policy and procedures, administration, operations and support services.

Comments are limited to 10 minutes each and must address the agency's ability to comply with CALEA's standards. A copy of the standards is available at the University Police Department. To request a copy, or more information, contact Rachel Junn, 657-278-4814.

In addition to the public hearing, additional comments may be made by calling 714-447-8033 on Tuesday, Aug. 9, between the hours of 1-3 p.m. All comments will be heard directly by members of the assessment team.

Written comments also are welcome and can be sent to the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Inc., 13575 Heathcote Blvd., Suite 320, Gainesville, VA, 20155.

The meeting and phone sessions are part of the accreditation process for University Police, which in 2001, became the first police department in the 23-campus California State University system to be accredited by the commission. Reaccreditations are conducted every three years.
