Policy and Accreditation
The Nebraska State Patrol is an internationally accredited law enforcement agency and a proud member of The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).
The Policy and Accreditation Division is responsible for the development and management of department policies, procedures, and forms. This process employs a deliberate system of principles designed to assist agency employees with both subjective and objective decision making. These activities impact all levels of the organization and contribute to the overall management and operational continuity throughout all levels of the organization.
Division responsibilities also include maintaining and continually verifying compliance with approximately 500 accreditation standards which govern the entire spectrum of contemporary policing. This process also requires the coordination of administration and management philosophies designed to contribute to overall organizational excellence, while ensuring accountability to the public.
