Continuous Improvement (Accreditation)

Last item for navigation

The College Station Police Department strives to serve our community with excellence. We do this by following established best practices and through constant communication with members of our community.


The College Station Police Department has been a Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) accredited Law Enforcement agency since 1991. The department holds an Advanced certification as well as a Meritorious designation.

CALEA accreditation is the cornerstone that distinguishes the College Station Police Department with qualities of professionalism, stewardship, integrity, diversity, 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 continues to be accredited today.

The processes involved in law enforcement and public safety communications accreditation 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.

CALEA accepts comments through a Public Comment Portal. The purpose of this public portal is to receive comments regarding the agency's compliance with CALEA standards, engagement in the community, delivery of public safety services, and overall candidacy for accredited status. These comments can be in the form of commendations or concerns. The overall intent of the accreditation process is to provide the participating agency with information to support continuous improvement, as well as foster the pursuit of professional excellence.

IMPORTANT: CALEA is not an investigatory body and subsequently the public portal should not be used to submit information for such purposes. Additionally, there will be no response other than acknowledgement to submissions; however, the information will be considered in context to its relevancy to compliance with standards and the tenets of CALEA® Accreditation.
