The Port Huron Police Department is inviting area residents to take place in a community assessment next week. On November 12th through the 14th, the department will be undergoing its 9th on-site assessment to ensure compliance with CALEA standards. CALEA, which stands for the Commission Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, is a nationally based organization that ensures compliance to a broad set of established professional standards including accountability, integrity, community partnership and more. As part of the assessment, citizens, businesses and organizations are welcome to contact assessors in person on Tuesday, November 12 from 5 to 6 p.m. at the City of Port Huron’s Public Meeting room in the Municipal Office Building or during a phone-in session on Wednesday November 13 from 9 to 11 a.m. Interested callers can reach assessors at 810-985-0141 during that time frame. If successful, the Port Huron Police Department will receive its accredited status and award at the CALEA Conference in March 2020.
