Accreditation Proposal

CALEA Contract


Welcome!  The Ardmore Police Department is pleased to announce that we officially entered into the accreditation process with the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) on March 9, 2009.  We are excited to take the next step to become a more professional law enforcement agency for our community.

As part of the accreditation process, we are required to maintain a public accreditation file for review by citizens or employees who wish to know more about accreditation, the standards, and the agency’s progress in the accreditation process.  This file can be accessed on our website or is available for inspection during regular business hours in the Office of Accreditation Management on the third floor of the Ardmore Police Department located at 23 South Washington, Ardmore, Oklahoma 73401. Your questions or comments are welcome via email, by phone, or in person.

To learn more about the process of accreditation and our progress, please feel free to peruse the accreditation proposal, accreditation contract, and agency self-assessment log.
