FDLE invites public to submit comments to CALEA

For Immediate Release
June 18, 2024
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – In July 1990, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) was the first state law enforcement agency in the nation to be accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA), and FDLE has voluntarily participated and maintained accreditation ever since.
Part of this process includes an opportunity for the public to provide comments, commendations and other feedback about the quality of FDLE’s services in compliance with CALEA standards and overall candidacy for accredited status.
The link to the public portal is posted on the FDLE homepage via this link: CALEA Comments. Comments can also be submitted at this link:
The overall intent of the accreditation process is to provide our agency with information to support continuous improvement, as well as to align our practices with nationwide best practices for law enforcement. 
CALEA is not an investigatory body and the public portal should not be used to submit information for such purposes.  Comments will be considered in context to their relevancy to FDLE’s compliance with the standards and tenets of CALEA accreditation.  The Public Comment Portal is maintained by CALEA, and feedback provided goes straight to CALEA.
