The Georgetown University Police Department is scheduled for an initial on-site assessment as part of the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) accreditation process to achieve re-accreditation by verifying it meets 189 professional law enforcement standards. We have all worked very hard to get to this point and we will all be very busy until after the assessors depart on June 14th.

  • CALEA Team Leader: Chief Linda Stump-Kurnick, University of Florida Police Department
  • CALEA Assessment Member: Lieutenant Deborah Morgan, (Ret) Virginia Tech Police Department and is currently the Executive Director for the New River Valley Alcohol Safety Action Program.

Administered by CALEA, the accreditation program requires law enforcement agencies to comply with national best practices and professional standards in four basic areas: policy and procedures, administration, operations, and support services.
As part of the on-site assessment, agency employees, service recipients and the public are invited to offer telephone comments to the assessment team by phoning 202-384-3358 on Monday, June 12, 2017 between 2:00 – 4;00 P.M. During this two-hour session, the Assessment Team will take comments. In addition, the public is invited to attend and speak at a public hearing at Georgetown University’s Riggs Library, 3rd Floor, at Healy Hall. 3700 O Street, NW Washington, DC Tuesday, June 13, 2017 beginning at 2:00 P.M. to offer comments to the Assessment Team regarding the Department’s ability to comply with CALEA’s standards. Telephone comments, as well as appearances at the public information session, are limited to ten (10) minutes and must address the Georgetown University’s Police Department’s ability to comply with CALEA's standards. For further information or questions, please contact Mr. James Richardson, Jr. at, or (202) 687-6254.
