The Law Enforcement Accreditation Program was the first credentialing program established by Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) after its founding. It was originally developed to address what was seen as a need to enhance law enforcement as a profession and to improve law enforcement. That mission continues today. It provides a process to systematically conduct an internal review and assessment of the agencies’ policies and procedures, and make adjustments wherever necessary to meet a body of internationally accepted standards.
The Hurst Police Department gained its first accreditation in 1990 and re-accreditation in 1995, 2000, 2003, 2006, 2009, 2012 and 2015.
