The NWPAC’s mission recognizes and supports the concept of national or state accreditation for law enforcement agencies, 9-1-1 communication centers and police training academies as a means to enhance the quality of professional services within Washington and Oregon. To this end, the NWPAC will provide a network of member agencies encouraging communication, mutual cooperation, and support and sharing valuable resources. The NWPAC includes agencies seeking CALEA, WASPC, and OAA accreditation
The purpose of CALEA’s Accreditation Programs is to improve the delivery of public safety services, primarily by: maintaining a body of standards, developed by public safety practitioners, covering a wide range of up-to-date public safety initiatives; establishing and administering an accreditation process; and recognizing professional excellence.
The mission of the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs (WASPC) is to lead collaboration among law enforcement executives to enhance public safety.
Oregon Accreditation Alliance
The Oregon Accreditation Alliance exists to improve the quality of law enforcement agencies in the State of Oregon and ultimately the quality of services provided to the citizens of this state.
