The William & Mary Police Department recently received accreditation from the Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards Commission, an agency of the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services. The certification, which was announced at the association’s annual conference last month, was officially presented Friday during the November meeting of the William & Mary Board of 访问ors. VLEPSC Commissioner Bradley J. Rinehimer made the presentation.
rinehimer，谁也主任詹姆斯市县警察局指出，wmpd获得“零个收益” - 100％的得分 - 在审查过程中，这是他说他在他的25年的职业生涯罕见。
“It certainly says a lot about the work they have done here at William & Mary and the work that Chief Cheesebro has done,” he said.
Before presenting the certificate of accreditation, Rinehimer read from the assessor’s report, which said in part, “The professionalism of the entire William & Mary Police Department, from support personnel, administrative staff all the way up to Chief Cheesebro, was obvious to these assessors. Chief Cheesebro not only requires, but demands the highest ethics and morals from members working under her leadership. She sets the example and expects the same from all of her employees.”
“I will absolutely tell you this without any hesitation, the level of professionalism and efficiency that the William & Mary Police Department has achieved under Chief Cheesebro and her staff is the best I’ve seen in my time here in James City County,” he said.
William & Mary is one of just six police departments at public universities or colleges in the Commonwealth to have achieved VLEPSC accreditation. 接受指定，各部门必须证明在连续四年期为190分的标准，其中包括700个个别审查点持续实践和绩效。 Agencies have to be reviewed for reaccreditation every four years.
“我们已经跨越了联合体100国家认可机构，” rinehimer指出。 “有没有那么多的大学是就这一作用，即对这项挑战，因为它很难。这不是一件容易的事。它的东西是很难要他们来，就很难维持。”
