Randolph Police to Welcome MPAC Accreditation Assessors to Station Next Month
RANDOLPH – Chief William Pace is pleased to announce that the Randolph Police Department will be welcoming a team of assessors from the Massachusetts Police Accreditation Commission (MPAC) into the station next month.
The visit, which will occur on Jan. 24, is part of the Randolph Police Department’s self-initiated effort to be re-accredited by MPAC. The department achieved accreditation in 2015, and has now approached its three-year mark for renewal.
“Achieving accreditation is a highly-prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence,” Chief Pace said. “We look forward to welcoming members MPAC into the station next month to begin this process.”
During their visit, MPAC assessors will be examining various aspects of the department’s policies, procedures, operations and facilities.
The MPAC program consists of 257 mandatory standards and 125 optional standards. In order to maintain their accreditation status, Chief Pace and the Randolph Police must meet all of the mandatory standards, and 60 percent of the optional standards.
Anyone with questions, or those who would like to learn more about the accreditation program, can contact Chief Pace or the department’s Accreditation Manager Lt. Melissa Greener at 781-963-1212.
