ORLANDO, Fla. — The University of Central Florida Police Department earned state accreditation once again from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation, the department said in a release Thursday.
UCFPD must comply with about 250 standards in order to earn accreditation. This process ensures transparency and accountability within health and safety issues.
Accreditation, which lasts for three years, is a voluntary process that reviews agency operations.
UCFPD was first accredited in 2013.
“My charge to every member of UCF Public Safety is to do the right thing, and the third-party review from the CFA validates that we are on the right path and serving our community according to the highest standards,” said UCF Police Chief Carl Metzger.
Metzger said the department is honored to continue to help the community with professional and innovative strategies.
