The University of Baltimore Police Department is a nationally accredited law enforcement agency that received initial accreditation in August 2013 from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA), following examination of the department’s policy and procedures, management, operations, and support services. UBPD received it reaccreditation (second award) in August 2016.
Verification by CALEA that UB Police are meeting its state-of-the-art standards is part of a voluntary process to maintain accreditation. The process requires UB’s compliance with 189 standards.
CALEA accreditation/recognition is granted for a four-year period, during which the law enforcement agency must submit annual reports attesting to continued compliance with those standards under which it was initially accredited.
A copy of the CALEA Standards is available at the UB Police Department, 1319 N. Charles St., Baltimore, Md. 21201. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to request information.
