Accreditation


The Utah Law Enforcement Professional Standards Accreditation Program, under the direction of the Utah Chiefs of Police Association, is intended to provide law enforcement agencies of the state of Utah an avenue for demonstrating that they meet accepted standards for effective and efficient operations.

Law enforcement executives who choose to have their agencies accredited under this program will have all aspects of their operations examined. The process is not intended to suggest that one agency provides better law enforcement services to its community than another agency, but rather to examine each agency’s policies to insure important areas are addressed.

The standards established for this process were developed by the Utah Law Enforcement Agencies Professional Standards Accreditation Committee made up from the membership of the Utah Chiefs of Police Association and the Utah Sheriffs Association.

Any agency interested in pursuing this accreditation may contact Dr. Frank Budd, Executive Director of the Utah Chiefs of Police Association for further information.
