Police Department Awarded Accreditation for Excellence

Department Achieves 'Rare' Milestone in 100 Percent Compliance

Rockville, Md., Aug. 12 — The Rockville City Police Department has received full accreditation for the next four years from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies during their attendance at CALEA's conference in Baltimore.

This is the seventh time RCPD has received the accreditation since it first received the designation in March 1994. According to CALEA's website, the credentialing program has "become the primary method for an agency to voluntarily demonstrate their commitment to excellence in law enforcement."

"This award reflects the hard work of every employee in the police department and I'd like to express our appreciation for a job well done," acting City Manager Craig L. Simoneau told the Mayor and Council during the City Manager's Report section of the Aug. 1 meeting.

During the three-year review cycle, the department was in compliance with 100 percent of all applicable other-than mandatory standards — a rare achievement, acting Chief Bob Rappoport said.

"Although this award goes to the great work of every employee in the police department, special acknowledgments to retired chief [Terrance] Treschuk for his leadership during this cycle, Major Eric Over, the department's Accreditation Manager, and Mr. Max Crago, Support Services Coordinator who spent numerous hours over the past three years ensuring the agency was meeting the 373 standards applicable to our agency size," Rappoport said in an email to the Rockville City Manager's Office.
