Prince William County Police seeking re-accreditation

WOODBRIDGE, Va. (AP) - The Prince William County Police Department is being examined by assessors from a national law enforcement group.

Assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies are visiting the county's training academy this week.

Next week, the department as a whole will be assessed for re-accreditation.

The department was last accredited by CALEA three years ago.

The examination ensures that the department's standards and procedures are consistent and up to date with national standards.
