The Alexandria Sheriff’s Office has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies for the tenth consecutive year.
ASO received its formal accreditation during CALEA’s fall conference on Nov. 18 and 19 in St. Louis. It also earned a meritorious distinction for being continuously accredited for more than 15 years.
CALEA conducted a virtual assessment over three days in April to evaluate ASO’s policies and procedures, management, operations and support services related to law enforcement.
“In many ways, the agency appears to be a model of how to operate a modern-law enforcement agency, especially in the area of community engagement and court security,” CALEA said, according to a news release.
ASO serves as a secondary responder with its primary mission of operating the William G. Truesdale Adult Detention center, managing courthouse security, transporting prisoners and serving legal processes and warrants.
