The College Station Police Department strives for service excellence to our community by continually reviewing our responses and best practices to ensure professionalism and integrity.
The College Station Police Department has been a CALEA accredited Law Enforcement agency since 1991. We have also received meritorious designation as such for more than 15 years as well as an “Accreditation with Excellence” designation for the effective use of accreditation as a model for the delivery of enhanced public safety services and management professionalism.
CALEA accreditation is the cornerstone that distinguishes the College Station Police Department with qualities of professionalism, stewardship, integrity, diversity, independence, continuous improvement, objectivity, credibility, consistency, knowledge, experience, accountability and collaboration. CSPD maintains programs for both law enforcement and public safety communications.
The Communication Division was the first such accredited program in the State of Texas in 2003 and has been reaccredited successfully three times since then.
The processes involved in the accreditation of our law enforcement and public safety communications address all administrative, management, and service-delivery aspects of the department’s operations and are designed to increase citizen and employee confidence in the goals, objectives, policies, and practices of the College Station Police Department.
The Department has also achieved Recognized Status for compliance with the Texas Law Enforcement Agency Best Practices Recognition Program. The College Station Police Department is committed to maintaining an efficient and effective delivery of service through best practices within Texas and nationally.
