Post Date:05/30/2019 10:40 AM

The Walla Walla Police Department is honored to have successfully achieved WASPC Accreditation as a Police Agency. The Department was presented with the award at the semiannual conference in Spokane on May 22. This award was received by Chief Scott Bieber and several staff who were integral in the success of achieving Accreditation.

The WASPC says this about Accreditation: “The purpose of law enforcement agency accreditation is to professionalize the law enforcement industry by providing a review process for agencies to be certified as operating under industry best practices and standards. In 1976 the Association was directed by the Washington State Legislature to develop standards and goals for Washington State Law Enforcement. The Association has maintained an operational accreditation program since that time.”
