The Chandler Police Department is the first police agency in Arizona to earn a Gold Standard Assessment Accreditation with Excellence!

On November 22, 2014, the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies awarded the Chandler Police Department the prestigious Gold Standard Assessment with Excellence. In order to receive this honor, the agency was required to be in compliance with 484 mandatory standards and in compliance with over 90 percent of optional standards. This was the department’s 7th consecutive re-accreditation. In 1996, the police department sought out and received accreditation for the first time demonstrating its voluntary commitment to the highest standards of performance.

CALEA accreditation is an integral component of Chandler’s professional reputation and assists us in our ability to help make Chandler one of the safest cities in the nation.
