 November 21, 2016 (Lincoln, Neb.)  —  The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) has once again awarded the Nebraska State Patrol the Gold Standard Accreditation “With Excellence Award.”

The Nebraska State Patrol received its reaccreditation during the CALEA Fall Conference in North Charleston, South Carolina, Nov. 2-5. To receive the “With Excellence” designation, the agency submitted to the CALEA Gold Standard Assessment process. The Gold Standard is a voluntary process focusing primarily on the practices and outcomes associated with standards specific to agency policy. The Gold Standard Assessment reviews key issues identifying an agency’s strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities, as it relates to standard-based issues.

“Maintaining the Gold Standard Accreditation is a testament to the dedication and professionalism of all our employees,” said Colonel Brad Rice, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “I am very proud of this accomplishment and our agency’s dedication to excellence.”

The Nebraska State Patrol first received the Gold Standard Accreditation “With Excellence Award”, during the 2013 CALEA accreditation process, and had previously been recognized as a Flagship Agency. The Flagship designation recognizes CALEA accredited public safety agencies that have demonstrated success in the accreditation process.

In order to gain accreditation, a law enforcement agency must prove compliance with nearly 500 CALEA standards. The Nebraska State Patrol was first accredited in 1980. Accreditation is for a period of three years, during which time the agency must submit annual reports attesting to continued compliance with the standards.  ###
