Contact the Office of Communications: (850) 617-7737
TALLAHASSEE, FL — Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ Office of Agricultural Law Enforcement and Office of Inspector General are undergoing the voluntary state law enforcement reaccreditation process. The Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA), based in Tallahassee, will review all aspects of the department’s policies and procedures, management, operations and support services to determine compliance with 276 recognized standards of excellence in law enforcement.
As part of the on-site assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team. A copy of the standards can be obtained from the department at (850) 245-1300. For more information regarding CFA or for persons wishing to offer written comments about the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ ability to meet the standards of accreditation, please write: CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida 32302, or email to email@example.com.
Undergoing the voluntary state accreditation process provides an agency with a quality assurance review and encourages intense self-scrutiny, resulting in more efficient and effective daily operations. Becoming reaccredited by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation is considered a significant accomplishment by the criminal justice community.
Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full Commission, which will then decide if the agency is to receive accredited status.
