University of Pennsylvania Police Department awarded Law Enforcement Re-Accreditation

The University of Pennsylvania Police Department has been awarded Law Enforcement Accreditation effective March 23, 2024, for the Eighth consecutive time.

The process of CALEA Accreditation begins with a rigorous self-assessment, requiring a review of policies, practices, and processes against internationally accepted public safety standards. This is followed with an assessment by independent assessors with significant public safety experience. Additionally, public feedback is received to promote community trust and engagement, and structured interviews are conducted with select agency personnel and others with knowledge to assess the agency’s effectiveness and overall service delivery capacities.
