Gazette Premium Content CBI announces accreditation, adherence to higher standards

By Lisa Walton Published: August 16, 2014

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation announced Friday that is now accredited through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. The nonprofit organization issues the accreditations with the aim of enhancing law enforcement practices, capabilities, and standards around the world.
According to the bureau, accreditation reduces liability and risk, increases accountability, improves relations and establishes a stringent set of standards.

Receiving the accreditation was a three-year process that required a thorough assessment of the bureau's practices, policies and procedures, officials said.

"Achieving accreditation status is a monumental accomplishment, and it places the CBI among an elite group of law enforcement agencies that have earned this critical designation," said CBI Director Ron Sloan.
