Barrington Hills Police Department

Calea Accreditation

Since 2004, the Barrington Hills Police has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).  The accreditation process is how a public safety agency voluntarily demonstrates how it meets professionally recognized criteria for excellence in management and service delivery.   The purpose of CALEA is to develop standards based on international best practices in public safety, and to establish and administer the accreditation process.

The Police Department works daily to maintain compliance with the standards.  Every four years, agencies must apply for re-accreditation, which is formal recognition that an agency has an excellent record of service and operation.  These awards are a testament to the service and commitment of police department staff members.

Accreditation Public Comment Portal

The purpose of this public portal is to receive comments regarding an agency’s compliance with CALEA standards, engagement in the service community, delivery of public safety services, and overall candidacy for accredited status. These comments can be in the form of commendations or concerns. The overall intent of the accreditation process is to provide the participating agency with information to support continuous improvement, as well as foster the pursuit of professional excellence.

IMPORTANT: CALEA is not an investigatory body and subsequently the public portal should not be used to submit information for such purposes.  Additionally, there will be no response other than acknowledgement to submissions; however, the information will be considered in context to its relevancy to compliance with standards and the tenets of CALEA® Accreditation.
