Stoughton

Police await accreditation word

Continue reading below

Stoughton police are optimistic the department will soon become fully accredited, following a visit on March 12 and 13 by assessors from the Massachusetts Police Accreditation Commission. “I don’t believe the assessors found anything that would prevent the department from achieving accreditation,” said Sergeant Thomas O’Brien, the department’s accreditation manager. “There were a few minor things they found, a punch list that had to be attended to.” Accreditation is a self-initiated evaluation process for police departments. The three-person accreditation team evaluated the department’s policies, operations, and facilities, and is expected to announce its decision soon. The Stoughton Police Department achieved certified status last May, the second step in the three-step process. Police Chief Paul Shastany made achieving accreditation one of his goals when he took over the department three years ago.
