Port St. Lucie - Wednesday June 1, 2022: A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will be in Port St. Lucie from on June 12th and 13th to examine all aspects of the Port St. Lucie Police Department’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services.

The Port St. Lucie Police Department has to comply with numerous standards in order to receive accredited status. Many of the standards are critical to life, health, safety issues, and best practices.

As part of the assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team. A copy of the standards manual is available on the CFA website at www.flaccreditation.org under the standards tab.

The accreditation program manager for the Port St. Lucie Police Department is Master Officer Jennifer DiMatteo-Bennett. The assessment team, composed of assessors from similar agencies, will review written materials, interview individuals, and visit offices and other areas where compliance can be observed.

Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they report to the full Commission, which then determines if the agency is to receive accredited or reaccredited status. The Port St. Lucie Police Department’s accreditation is valid for a period of three years. Verification by the team that the Port St. Lucie Police Department meets the Commission’s standards is part of a voluntary process to gain or maintain accreditation—"a highly prized recognition of professional excellence,” stated Chief John Bolduc.

For more information regarding CFA or for persons wishing to offer written comments about the Port St. Lucie Police Department’s ability to meet the standards of accreditation, email: flaccreditation@fdle.state.fl.us, or write to: CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida, 32302.
