The City of Middletown Police Department is committed to providing the highest level of quality service to the community. In order to achieve this we have undertaken and successfully completed the mission to become an accredited law enforcement agency. Accreditation, long considered an essential component of establishing professional excellence in other fields, is a relatively new concept for law enforcement agencies. Our commitment to quality service and professional excellence led us to voluntarily participate in the NYS accreditation program.
We received accreditation with the New York State Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (LEAP). At a meeting held in Albany on December 13, 2007, the New York State Law Enforcement Accreditation Council unanimously approved the Department's application to receive State accreditation after reviewing a report of an on-site inspection of the City of Middletown Police Department conducted in October of the same year.
To maintain our accreditation under LEAP we must be reviewed every five years for reaccreditation. This includes a full on-site assessment to ensure the Department is adhering to the required standards. You may obtain additional information about the LEAP accreditation program at the DCJS website.
Achieving LEAP accreditation demonstrates the City of Middletown Police Department's commitment to professional excellence and quality service to the community.
