The Grove City Division of Police is scheduled for an assessment Dec. 7-10, by a team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, CALEA. All aspects of the Division’s policies, procedures, management controls, operations and support services will be examined. The CALEA assessment team will be comprised of law enforcement professionals from out-of-state.

The Grove City Division of Police originally became accredited through CALEA in 2002 and received its most recent re-accreditation award in March of 2017. CALEA accreditation is a voluntary process and highly prized recognition for police agencies.
