After an extensive process, the Royal Oak Police Department has officially obtained the status of an accredited agency through the Michigan Law Enforcement Accreditation Program.
Accreditation is a progressive and time-proven way of helping law enforcement agencies calculate and improve their overall performances. A thorough self-analysis was completed to determine which of our existing operations already met some of the standards and/or how the procedures can be adapted to meet the standards and professional objectives.
Once the procedures were in place, a team of trained Commission assessors verified that applicable standards have been successfully implemented and our agency was is in compliance. A hearing was held by the Accreditation Commission to review the assessors report and to conduct an interview with the Chief Michael Moore and our accreditation team. The Accreditation Commission voted unanimously to approve the Royal Oak Police Department accredited status. The Royal Oak Police Department is one of only 10% of all law enforcement agencies in the state that have reached this accreditation status.
