CALEA Professional Standards and what it means for law enforcement


In partnership with the Commission on Law Enforcement Agencies Accreditation, Inc., the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office (LPSO) will administer a virtual on-site assessment April 11-13.

In order to provide excellent law enforcement service, LPSO voluntarily participates in CALEA Professional Standards. The agency’s accreditation is based on standards that provide best practices related to health, safety and security of people.

In today’s law enforcement agencies, these standards are considered fundamental. By using the program, high-risk issues can be resolved in a contemporary environment. Officers receive training to prepare them for community service, ensuring they are well prepared for any surprises.

An organization accredited by the Advanced Law Enforcement Accreditation Program will be able to meet any operational or administrative challenge, as well as be a leader in the industry.

On Monday, April 11, 2022, agency employees and community members are invited to participate in the onsite assessment by calling (337) 236-5819 between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. During this time, the assessment team will be taking comments over a telephone line which will not be recorded. Additional comment opportunities will be available on Tuesday, April 12, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. at the LPSO Public Safety Complex located at 1825 West Willow Street, Scott, LA 70583.

The agency’s ability to comply with CALEA standards should be discussed in both telephone commentary and public briefings. Standard copies can be examined at the LPSO. The accreditation office can be contacted at (337) 236-5864 if you need more information.
