Professional Standards and Accreditation

Professional Standards: 

The Kenneth City Police Department has committed to the development of new comprehensive General Orders which will lay the foundation for the path to our accreditation. In the near future the Kenneth City Police Department will be seeking accreditation with the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation.               


An accreditation program has long been recognized as a means of maintaining the highest standards of professionalism. Accreditation is the certification by an independent reviewing authority that an entity has met specific requirements and prescribed standards.

Law enforcement agencies in Florida can attain accredited status through the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation. Since 1993, in accordance with Florida Statute 943.125, Florida Law Enforcement agencies have had access to this voluntary accreditation program, which is overseen by a commission of public safety executives and staffed by members of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

The process requires compliance with more than 250 professional standards designed specifically for Florida law enforcement agencies.
