Professional Standards Division
The Professional Standards Division (PSD) is responsible for conducting several tasks including organizing the Department’s annual training, the recruitment and hiring of both sworn and non-sworn personnel, and overseeing the field training program for newly hired police officers.
Planning and Research
The Planning and Research Division handles several administrative duties within the Police Department. Their primary function is the continued compliance with the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) Standards. Accreditation is a continuous process and requires constant vigilance and attention to detail. During 2016, the Planning and Research Division completed the transition of the Department to a completely electronic means of performing its accreditation processes and file maintenance. Coupled with the recent changes instituted by CALEA, the Department now uploads proofs of standard compliance on a daily basis for CALEA review.
