Accreditation is a progressive and time-proven way of helping law enforcement agencies calculate and improve their overall performances. The foundation of accreditation lies in the adoption of standards containing a clear statement of professional objectives. Participating agencies conduct a thorough self-analysis to determine how existing operations can be adapted to meet these objectives. When the procedures are in place, a team of trained assessors verifies that applicable standards have been successfully implemented. UCOPA is the acronym for the “Utah Chiefs of Police Association” who developed a comprehensive “Accreditation Program” for police agencies in Utah to apply for and achieve “Accreditation” status. The accreditation process usually takes three years to complete, and it is no small task!
Accreditation status represents a significant professional achievement. Accreditation acknowledges the implementation of policies and procedures that are conceptually sound and operationally effective. There are 176 standards that must be met to become accredited. Agencies must have best practices and current legally sound policies and procedures, and they must provide proof of compliance of these policies.
