A team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA), will be in town this weekend to examine all aspects of the Grayslake Police Department’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services, Chief Phil Perlini announced.
“Verification by the team that the Grayslake Police Department meets the commission’s over 400 standards is part of a voluntary process to gain re-accreditation – a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence”, he said.
Comment in-person or by phone
As part of the on-site assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session on Monday, Nov. 12, 2012 at 6 p.m.
The session will be conducted in the Grayslake Village Hall at 10 S. Seymour Ave., in Grayslake.
If for some reason an individual cannot speak at the public information session but would still like to provide comments to the assessment team, he or she may do so by telephone. The public may call (847) 986-3200 on Monday, Nov. 12, between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.
Telephone comments as well as appearances at the public information session are limited to ten minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with CALEA’s standards.
A copy of the standards will be available at the Grayslake Police Station for viewing. The local contact is Sergeant Guy Fiasche at (847) 223-2341 ext 305.
