Community Invited to Public Forum on Lafayette Police Department
Offer comments and ask questions about the Lafayette Police Department's bid for accreditation
Lafayette, LA (KADN) — A team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies will begin to examine the Lafayette Police Department's policy and procedures, management, operations, and support.
If the team meets the Commission's state-of-the-art standards, the department will earn accreditation, which is a highly prized recognition that our police force feels it deserves.
Corporal Paul Mouton explains why earning this accreditation is important to the department: "We feel that it's going to build a better relationship between us and the community that we serve."
The public information session will be held at the Lafayette Consolidated Government Council Auditorium on Monday November, 12. Corporal Mouton says that the forum will give the community a chance to ask questions about why the police department is trying to earn this accreditation, and what the accreditation would mean for the community. The forum will start at 2 o'clock in the afternoon and go until five o'clock pm.
