RTPD Receives Accreditation
On January 31, 2017, the Richland Township Police Department received accredited status with a unanimous vote of the Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission. Richland Township joins about 110 other jurisdictions that have attained this status since the inception of the program in 2001.
Accreditation is a progressive and time-proven way of helping institutions evaluate and improve their overall performance. The cornerstone of this strategy lies in the promulgation of standards containing a clear statement of professional objectives. Participating administrators then conduct a thorough analysis to determine how existing operations can be adapted to meet these objectives. When the procedures are in place, a team of independent professionals is assigned to verify that all applicable standards have been successfully implemented. The process culminates with a decision by an authoritative body that the institution is worthy of accreditation.
