Department Accreditation

The Frisco Police Department has completed its voluntary assessment against a body of 459 nationally-recognized professional standards developed by The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA). This required an in-depth review and audit of every aspect of the department's organization, management, operations, and administration.

In August 2008, the department underwent the initial accreditation review in the Law Enforcement Accreditation Program. On December 6, 2008, the department was awarded full accreditation. Our department was awarded its reaccreditation in November 2011, November 2014 and November 2017. The next assessment will take place in June 2021. The Communications Division received its initial CALEA Communications Accreditation in November 2017. The Frisco Police Department is one of three municipal agencies in Texas that is dually accredited in Law Enforcement and Communications Accreditation.

Guided by our mission, vision, and organizational values, the Frisco Police Department took a participatory approach to this process, assigning the lions’ share of policy research and development to many members.

In fact, these days, accreditation familiarization training begins early in any Frisco Police Department employee's career, with an introductory segment being presented in their orientation phase of employment.

This voluntary effort helps assure our citizens the Frisco Police Department is committed to professional excellence and delivery of the highest level of service to our community.
