THE PROCESS

  • An Office of Inspector General Investigations (OIG) must apply to the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation to participate in the accreditation process.
  • The OIG will be required to demonstrate compliance with all mandatory standards and not less than 80% of non-mandatory standards.
  • Proof of compliance with the standards is determined by an assessment team sent by the Commission, conducting an on-site review of the OIG’s own policies, procedures and practices.
  • Assistance is available from the Commission in the form of consultation with accredited law enforcement agencies, and informal peer evaluation.
  • Agencies will remain accredited for a period of three years. After the three year period they must be reaccredited.
