Farmington Public Safety is among 34 Michigan agencies accredited by the Michgian Association of Chiefs of Police (MACP). The department was awarded accreditation in 2018 and is in the process of applying for re-accreditation in 2021.
Accreditation is a progressive and time-proven way of helping law enforcement agencies calculate and improve their overall performance. The foundation of Accreditation lies in the adoption of standards containing a clear statement of professional objectives, while ensuring transparency and accountability. Participating agencies conduct a thorough self-analysis to determine how existing operations can be adapted to meet these objectives. When the procedures are in place, a team of trained assessors verifies that applicable standards have been successfully implemented.
