BREVARD COUNTY • WEST MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The West Melbourne Police Department invites public comment as the department proceeds through its initial accreditation process by an independent reviewing authority confirming that an entity has met specific requirements and prescribed standards of excellence.

The Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation, Inc. (CFA) is the accrediting body for law enforcement agencies in the State of Florida.

Accreditation requires consistency, transparency and accountability, which is confirmed through an on-site assessment.

To ensure compliance with accreditation standards, assessors review written materials, interview agency members, and observe issued equipment and facilities.

During April 19-21, three assessors will confirm West Melbourne Police Department’s compliance with nearly 260 CFA accreditation standards. The assessment team is comprised of law enforcement practitioners from various law enforcement agencies across Florida.

Accreditation affirms the Department’s continued commitment to professional excellence and increases the Department’s ability to fulfill its mission of serving and safeguarding the public and businesses operating in the City of West Melbourne.
