WOODSTOCK POLICE RECEIVES NATIONAL ACCREDITATION
November 28, 2017 – At last night’s Mayor and City Council meeting, Chief Moss announced that the Woodstock Police Department received its accreditation from CALEA (Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies).  This achievement demonstrates the department’s commitment to professional excellence in policy and practice.

On November 18, 2017, Woodstock’s Police Chief Calvin W. Moss and Assistant Chief Kevin Culpepper attended the CALEA Conference, held in Jacksonville, FL, where the Woodstock Police Department was awarded its Accreditation.  This process involved meeting or exceeding 177 standards, the culmination of self-evaluations, and was concluded by a review from independent assessors that took place in June of this year as well as a review by CALEA’s Commissioners.  

The Woodstock Police Department joins with just 20% of law enforcement agencies its size in the nation in receiving this distinguished honor.  Further, the Woodstock Police Department is among the just 5% of law enforcement agencies in the State of Georgia that are both State Certified and Nationally Accredited law enforcement agencies.

“Our mission is to pursue professional excellence and we are committed to doing just that” says Chief Moss.  “This honor represents the best in class service our team strives to provide to Woodstock, its citizens, business owners, and guests” he continues

The Woodstock Police Department was previously accredited by CALEA from 2001-2004.
