Getting Started


with Donna Taylor Mooers

Calendar Dec 5, 2018 at 9 am

Location: Wellesley Police Department

Your department has decided that certification is a worthy goal and wants to be certified; now what?  This workshop provides direction on how and where to begin the process, focusing on start-up tasks, written directive systems and policy writing. The first part of the workshop focuses on a Checklist and Guide for Getting Started.  The second half focuses on standards 12.2.1 and 12.2.2 dealing with written directive systems because they are the foundation for complying with accreditation standards.  Particular attention will be given to: types of directives; formatting directives; methods for disseminating them; systems to acknowledge when directives have been read; and finally, how to keep them updated.

Program Orientation


with Donna Taylor Mooers

Calendar Dec 4, 2018 at 9 am

Location: Wellesley Police Department

This workshop is designed for those who are new to the process or who have been in the process and need refresher training.  It is NOT a sales pitch, but an overview of the Massachusetts Police Accreditation Program detailing what agencies need to know and do in order to get their department certified (and maybe accredited later).  Attendees will hear about the nature and scope of the on-site assessment; the standards for certification including those impacting police facilities, equipment and personnel; the cost to participate; the workload involved; and finally, what support services are available from the Commission.  Materials to be reviewed include the Commission’s Assessment Checklists.
