CALEA Public Comment Portal

The Derry Township Police Department is proud to be a dually accredited police agency. We have maintained international accreditation through the Commission for Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies(CALEA®) since 1997 and state accreditation through the Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission (PLEAC) since 2002. 

As part of the accreditation process, we welcome public comment on our compliance with CALEA standards engagement in the service 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.
