with Lt. Laurene Spiess
Only 3 days left to register!
Location: Andover Police Department
This training opportunity will consist of two modules: Preparing for the Assessment and Problem Standards. Preparing for the Assessment will be facilitated by Lt. Laurene Spiess from Boston College and Lt. Ed Guy from Andover and Problem Standards will be facilitated by Lt. Daniel Unsworth from Watertown and Lt. Colleen Dunbar from Lexington.
Preparing for the Assessment:
This workshop covers the major facets of the on-site assessment phase beginning with two preliminary reviews: one by the agency's peers known as the mock assessment and the other by the Commission to determine an agency’s readiness to be assessed by the Commission. Timelines (in conjunction with the Commission’s meeting schedule), the Commission’s Checklist for Preparing for the On-site Assessment, what you can expect from the assessors, the station tour, assessment notification requirements (for accreditation only), the exit briefing with the assessors, the assessment team’s report, and finally the review before the Commission will all be discussed.
The focus of this workshop is on “reading” standards correctly, and this involves a critical eye. A collection of the most frequently misinterpreted/problematic standards will be presented for review and discussion. Reviewing frequently used terms and identifying standards that are commonly on an agency’s Repair List are also on the agenda.
Parking Considerations: Parking at the Andover Police Department will be on-street parking. There is no parking in the Police Department lot.
