Police force earns accreditation

Continue reading below

After a series of inspections, the Police Department has become the 45th department in the state to meet the operating standards of the Massachusetts Police Accreditation Commission. The private, nonprofit organization granted a three-year accreditation to the Brookline force last month following a review of the department’s policies and practices, covering everything from emergency response planning to use of force, vehicular pursuits, and prisoner holding facilities. The accreditation is a voluntary program that police departments can initiate to be evaluated on more than 300 policing standards. An assessment team inspected the department in August and found it to be in compliance with all the standards for accreditation.
