Accreditation

The UPPD is a fully-accredited police department, and has been since March 2001, through the Commission on the Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA)*, which administers a rigorous accreditation process whereby law enforcement agencies must adhere to over 440 standards, codes and state-of-the-art practices. The UPPD is the first Pennsylvania university police department to receive this prestigious recognition, and one of 54 in the nation.
