        Georgia State Law Enforcement Certification
 

 

 

WHAT IS CERTIFICATION?

Certification is a progressive and time-proven way of helping law enforcement agencies calculate and improve their overall performances. The foundation of certification lies in the promulgation of standards containing a clear statement of professional objectives. Participating agencies conduct a thorough self-analysis to determine how existing operations can be adapted to meet these objectives. When the procedures are in place, a team of trained assessors verifies that applicable standards have been successfully implemented. The process culminates with a decision by a joint executive committee that the agency has met the requirements for certification.

Certification status represents a significant professional achievement. Certification acknowledges the implementation of policies and procedures that are conceptually sound and operationally effective.


BENEFITS OF CERTIFICATION

The benefits of certification include:

  • Confirmation that agency practices are consistent with progressive professional standards
     
  • Greater operational and administrative effectiveness
     
  • Enhanced understanding of agency policies and practices
     
  • Greater public confidence in the agency
     
  • Recognition in the field of outstanding achievement
     
  • Reduced liability potential
     
  • Greater governmental and community support
