In case you missed it, I penned an op-ed that was published in The Daily News Record earlier this week about the need for our local law enforcement and jails to be accredited.
Accreditation — the word sounds like something we would want in organizations providing services to our communities. Particularly when those agencies have the responsibility of keeping our communities safe and guarding the constitutional rights of all citizens. Would it surprise you to know that some police agencies and jails in our community are not accredited? Would it surprise you more to learn that some don’t even want to be?
