A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will arrive Tuesday, August 10, 2021 to examine all aspects of the Kissimmee Police Department (KPD) for the purpose of reaccrediting the agency in accordance with CFA standards. The assessors will examine KPD’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services. Many of the standards are critical to life, health, and safety issues.

As part of the on-site assessment, agency members and the public are invited to offer written comments to the assessment team. For more information regarding CFA or for anyone wishing to offer written comments about KPD’s ability to meet the standards of accreditation, please send an email to flaccreditation@fdle.state.fl.us or write:

The assessment team is composed of law enforcement practitioners from similar agencies who have extensive law enforcement experience and knowledge. The assessors will review written materials, interview individuals, visit offices and also other places where compliance can be observed.

After the assessment team completes their review of the agency, they report to the CFA Commission, which will then decide if the agency is to be re-accredited. The Kissimmee Police Department’s accreditation period is for three (3) years. Verification by the assessment team that KPD continues to meet the CFA Commission’s standards is part of a voluntary process to maintain accreditation – a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence.
