• Police agency in Trayvon Martin case gets re-accredited


    SANFORD, Fla. - The police department that initially investigated the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin is getting re-accredited.
    The Sanford Police Department announced Tuesday that the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation unanimously voted to re-accredit the agency.
    The Sanford Police Department came under fire for its initial handling of Martin's fatal shooting by former neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman last February in a gated community.
    Zimmerman wasn't arrested until 44 days after Martin was killed.
    Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder but is pleading not guilty. He is claiming self-defense.
