KINGMAN – The Kingman Police Department (KPD) is seeking its four-year re-accreditation through the Arizona Association of Chiefs of Police (AACOP) Arizona Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (ALEAP).  Accreditation is a progressive and time-proven method of assisting law enforcement agencies in measuring and improving their overall performance.  ALEAP is intended to provide law enforcement agencies in the state with an avenue for demonstrating that they meet commonly accepted best practices and industry standards for efficient, effective, productive and quality operations. 

A team of assessors will be conducting an on-site assessment of KPD’s compliance with the ALEAP standards as part of the voluntary pursuit to achieve ALEAP accreditation.  As part of the on-site assessment, members of the community and agency employees are invited to offer comments regarding KPD during a public call-in session on Wednesday, August 9, between the hours of 2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.  Calls can be made to 928-753-2006.  Calls will not be recorded and callers will speak directly with ALEAP assessors.  Comments should be limited to five  minutes and address the department’s ability to comply with ALEAP standards.
