On November 20, 2016, the Rogers Police Department was awarded its third consecutive accreditation award in Law Enforcement by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). Following a comprehensive on-site assessment, the department was found to be in compliance with all standards required by CALEA.
The Rogers Police Department has been a CALEA accredited agency since 2010 and is proud to be the first public safety department in the city to be accredited. It is also proud to be numbered among the top 4% of all law enforcement agencies in the country to receive the accreditation award.
To achieve and retain accreditation, each operational component of the department must comply with stringent CALEA standards throughout the accreditation period. Accreditation is a voluntary process that formalizes operational and management procedures and creates both transparency and accountability of operations.
