  • Calea

    During my internship at a local pd, my primary responsibility was to modify, edit and help improve CALEA general orders under the direction of my supervisor. I would hate to lose those skills while I wait and test at different departments. Any suggestions as to how I can maintain those skills or continue working on CALEA related projects? Are any of you accreditation managers for your department? Might I be the only one that thinks accreditation is interesting? haha jk

    It's easy, just find the most gullible dept. in your area, and you're in! Just rinse, wash, repeat until you've ran out of agencies to fleece. You may have to move to a different state after that to maintain your skills.

        Wow. Calea is ridiculous. Most cops dislike it. Forget everything you learned.
        For the cops out there: You are an adult. If you want to write someone, write them. If you don't want to write someone, then don't write them.

          I can think of far more critical skills you should maintain than CALEA General Orders, or for that matter CALEA in general. Obviously, I'm no fan of CALEA, although many administrators think it's manna from Heaven. If CALEA meant increased salaries, benefits, equipment, better working conditions etc, I'd be all for it. Fortunately, my agency wasn't taken in by CALEA, and never was a party to it. O T H, if you think accreditation/CALEA are positives, do your best to maintain interest in them. I'm certain some colleagues may have views more favorable to CALEA than mine, but quite a few of us aren't really too enthusiastic about it.

            ^^^^This.

            Everything you need to know about CALEA can be summed up by the original post. Any department that allows its general orders to be written by an intern is already going down the pipe fast.

                CALEA is a sham, created to make money from departments who foolishly think it means something to anyone. It means nothing to the citizens, who couldn't even tell you what CALEA means.

                Your department receives no benefit from it, but will be more than happy to waste time, resources, and money on attaining the perceived prestige from it.

                Not to mention it will dedicate an officer, typically the rank of Sgt. or above, making an obscene amount of money, who hasn't been on the road since the mid 90's, to oversee it. He'll pump out policies so full of problems that they'll have to be redone 6 or 8 times before they're even passable to be distributed to the officers, who will then voice their issues with the policy, requiring another 3-4 rewrites.

                At the end of the process, you'll get an ugly sticker to put on your car and website. Totally worth it huh?

                  Sounds like a future chief to me................................


                  Police has CALEA

                  Corrections has ACA


                  BOTH are a waste of trees.

                      For a Correctional Facility to become American Correctional Association Accredited

                      You start with a $10,000 payment to ACC-----That is every institution ....not the agency.
                      THEN hire a supervisor to become the Accreditation manager ----at a Captain's paygrade

                        It makes no sense at all for a California agency to whore up with CALEA. POST has stringent standards, and isn't CHP a POST-certified agency? Actually, CALEA is useless for any agency anywhere. If a chief is concerned that his policies need review, he can send copies of the manual out to some of his peers at other agencies and get their suggestions.

                          Actually, one can join the International Association of Chiefs of Police and get free policy/procedure help from them.....including stuff already done in Word format. All you have to do is add/delete as needed.....and change names.

                          So easy, that even a Bearcat did it for one of his part-time agencies....

                            Or call an agency with policies you like and they will be more than happy to email them to you.

                            OR

                            Just rip them off websites :P

                            I believe my hometown (around 50,000 people) spent hundreds of thousands making CALEA happy so they can could get certified. I hate to see what CHP spent.

                              Wisconsin even has a model policy section on WILENET (our law enforcement information sharing website) that has a model policy on just about everything under the sun. You could have a policy manual completely written in a weekend with time left for beer and BBQ.
