CALEA Accreditation

The MCAO Investigations Division was awarded full accreditation status in July of 2004 by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). The Investigations Division was the first and is the only accredited prosecutor's office in the United States to be awarded CALEA accreditation, and was selected as a Flagship agency in 2010. In April 2016, the Division participated in its second Gold Standard Assessment and expects to achieve reaccreditation at the July 2016 CALEA conference.
