The University of Baltimore Police Department is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of a program to achieve accreditation by verifying that it meets professional standards.
Administered by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc., the accreditation program requires agencies to comply with state-of-the-art standards in four basic areas: policy and procedures, administration, operations and support services. As part of the on-site assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session on Tuesday, March 26, beginning at 5 p.m. Persons interested in speaking are required to sign-in prior to speaking. The session will be conducted in the Venable Baetjer Howard Moot Court Room in the University of Baltimore School of Law, 1415 Maryland Ave. in Baltimore. The entrance to the building is adjacent to Gordon Plaza, at the northwest intersection of Maryland and Mt. Royal avenues.
Agency employees and the public are also invited to offer comments by calling 410.837.5116 on March 26 between the hours of 1 and 3 p.m.
Telephone comments, as well as appearances at the public information session, are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency's ability to comply with CALEA's standards. A copy of the standards is available through the University of Baltimore Police Department, Suite 128 in the Academic Center, 1420 N. Charles St.
Anyone who seeks to submit written comments about the University of Baltimore Police Department's ability to comply with the standards for accreditation may send them to the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc.
