Canyon Police Department Makes History
The Canyon Police Department has completed its fifth onsite inspection through the Texas Police Chiefs Association Foundation (TPCAF) Accreditation Program.
The program itself is a voluntary one that holds law enforcement agencies to a high professional standard, with roughly seven percent of all law enforcement agencies being accredited in the state of Texas.
Criteria for this distinction include required equipment on patrol, annual training requirements, and records retention standards, among the 170 professional standards that were met during the inspection.
Along with being one of the first agencies to be accredited in this program, Canyon PD is also the first agency to complete five onsite inspections in the history of the program.
These inspections take place every four years however annual reports from the agencies must be sent in to ensure continued compliance in-between onsite inspections.
