Farmington Hills Police Department seeks comments for accreditation

The Farmington Hills Police Department in its effort toward Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police (MACP) full Accreditation status is asking for public comments by phone and email.

On June 5 and 6, a team of assessors from the Michigan Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission (MLEAC) will conduct a final On-Site Assessment of the department’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services.

“Verification that the Farmington Hills Police Department meets the MLEAC’s ‘best practice’ standards is part of a voluntary process to achieve accreditation. This highly sought after accomplishment is a source of pride to the community and members of the Department,” said Police Chief Chuck Nebus.

Commenters may call 248-871-2711 between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on June 6, 2018, or send comments to Assistant Chief Mike Ciaramitaro at mciaramitaro@fhgov.com.

Telephone comments are limited to five minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with the Commission’s standards. Copies of the standards are available for inspection at the Farmington Hills Police Department, 31655 W. 11 Mile Rd.  or at Michigan Law Enforcement Accreditation Program Standards.

Written comments about the Farmington Hills Police Department’s ability to comply with the standards for accreditation may be sent to nrossow@michiganpolicechiefs.org or to the Michigan Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission, 3474 Alaiedon Pkwy, Suite 600, Okemos, MI 48864.

The Farmington Hills Police Department must comply with 105 standards to achieve Accreditation status. Standards compliance increases professionalism and transparency, and strengthens community partnerships.
