RCPD accredited for another three years


The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies recently reaccredited the Riley County Police Department for three years, according to a department press release.
The department was designated as a Flagship Agency.

“The flagship thing is a pretty big deal,” said Brad Schoen, director of the RCPD. “Not a lot of people get that.”

To receive reaccredidation, the RCPD underwent a three-day on-site assessment process in December 2009. Assessors from the CALEA conducted research to ensure the department was meeting the requirements of the 463 mandatory standards.

Director Schoen credited Suellyn Hooper, accreditation manager, for the department’s success.

“We’re fortunate that we have Suellyn to keep the train moving and on the tracks,” he said.
Reaccreditation is a voluntary process, according to the press release.
