Marshall County Sheriff's Office to get Re-Assessed by CALEA

November 16, 2008

Marshall County Sheriff's Office - Marshall County Sheriff Ted G. Kamatchus announced today that a team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA), will arrive December 6th, 2008 to examine all aspects of the Marshall County Sheriff's Office policy, procedures, management, operations, and support services.

Sheriff Kamatchus said, "Verification by the team that the Marshall County Sheriff's Office meets the Commission's state-of-the-art standards is part of a voluntary process to maintain accreditation-a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence." The Marshall County Sheriff's Office was first accredited in 1999 and has maintained that status since.

As part of the on-site assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session on Monday December 8, 2008 beginning at 7:00 PM. The session will be conducted at the Marshall County Sheriff's Office 3rd Floor Meeting Room. The Sheriff's Office is located at 2369 Jessup Ave. If for some reason an individual cannot speak at the public information session but would still like to provide comments to the assessment team, he/she may do so by telephone. The public may call 641- 754-6377 ext. 2129 on Monday December 8, 2008 between the hours of 1:00 PM and 5:00 PM.

Telephone comments as well as appearances at the public information session are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency's ability to comply with CALEA's standards. A copy of the standards is available upon request at the Marshall County Sheriff's Office. You should contact Chief Deputy Sheriff Burt D. Tecklenburg at 641-754-6380.

Persons wishing to offer written comments about the Marshall County Sheriff's Office's ability to meet the standards for accreditation are requested to write: Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA), 10302 Eaton Place, Suite 100, Fairfax, Virginia, 22030-2215

Sheriff Ted G. Kamatchus stated, "The Marshall County Sheriff's Office has to comply with nearly 450 applicable standards in order to maintain accredited status necessary to maintain this high level of achievement. With this honor, the Marshall County Sheriff's Office has become one of the elite law enforcement agencies in the Country. I am proud of the men and women of my agency for having achieved this great goal."

The Accreditation Program Manager for the Marshall County Sheriff's Office is Chief Deputy Sheriff Burt D. Tecklenburg. The on-site assessment team is composed of law enforcement practitioners from similar agencies from out-of-state. The assessors will review written materials, interview individuals, and visit offices and other places where compliance can be witnessed.

The assessors are: Chief Thomas C. Johnson of the Western Carolina University Police Department, Cullowhee, NC and Lieutenant Donald J. Gasparini, Jr of the Winnebago County Sheriff's Office, Rockford, Il. Chief Deputy Tecklenburg stated, "Once the Commission's assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full Commission, which will then review the report and decide if the agency is to be granted reaccredited status." Accreditation is for three years, during which the agency must submit annual reports attesting continued compliance with those standards under which it was initially accredited.

For more information regarding the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. please write the Commission at 10302 Eaton Place, Suite 100, Fairfax, Virginia, 22030-2215; or call (800) 368-3757 or (703) 352-4225. Or Visit: www.CALEA.org
