University of Kansas Medical Center Police Department CALEA Assessment

The University of Kansas Medical Center Police Department will be undergoing an assessment as part of its goal of re-accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). This volunteer process by the department for CALEA accreditation is undertaken to ensure the University of Kansas Medical Center Police Department continues to follow the most current and best practices within the profession of law enforcement.

The CALEA's Accreditation program maintains a body of standards that agencies must comply with to be awarded. A team of assessors from CALEA will examine all aspects of the department policy and procedures, management, operations, and support services during their assessment.

As part of the assessment, agency employees, members of the university and hospital, as well as individuals of the community are invited to offer comments to the CALEA assessment team. Comments will be limited to five (5) minutes in length and must address the University of Kansas Medical Center Police Department's ability to comply with CALEA standards or other significant issues.

Comments to the assessment team can be made via three ways:

  1. A virtual "town-hall" public hearing is scheduled for October 18th at 2:00 p.m. through Zoom. To provide public testimony, participants must log into Zoom at the start of the meeting.
