Hartford Police Department works to keep Hartford residents safe by responding to and investigating crimes, reducing crime, and by forging strong relationships between police officers of all ranks and the communities they serve.
The Hartford Police Department is scheduled for a site-based assessment as part of a program to achieve accreditation by verifying it meets professional standards.
Administered by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA®), 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.
Access to the CALEA standards can be obtained by contacting Lieutenant Lara Traczynski. As part of the assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments via a public access portal located here.
Anyone wishing to submit written comments about the Hartford Police Department's ability to comply with the standards for accreditation may send them to the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement, Inc. (CALEA), 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 160, Gainesville, Virginia, 20155 or email email@example.com.
