MDTA Police Announce Re-Accreditation Inspection

Inspection Team Asking for Public Comment

BALTIMORE, MD As part of the process required for national law-enforcement re-accreditation, the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) Police will undergo an on-site assessment conducted by a team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) Dec. 15-18.

Accreditation is a voluntary process that recognizes law-enforcement excellence, adherence to the Commissions stringent standards and assures the citizens of Maryland that the MDTA Police is among the finest in the nation.

The team of CALEA assessors will perform a comprehensive examination of the forces policies and procedures, management, operations and support services.  As part of the on-site assessment, MDTA employees and the public are invited to provide comments regarding the MDTA Police directly to the CALEA assessment team via telephone, U.S. mail or the internet:

  • Verbal comments will be accepted by the assessment team on Sunday, Dec. 16, from 12 noon to 2 p.m. by calling 410-537-7709.
  • Written comments may be sent to CALEA at 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320, Gainesville, Va. 20155 or www.calea.org.

The MDTA Police attained national accreditation in 2001.  The CALEA assessment team consists of law-enforcement professionals from similar police agencies around the country.  The re-accreditation process takes place every three years.

CALEA was established as an independent accrediting authority in 1979 by four membership associations: the International Association of Chiefs of Police, the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives, the National Sheriffs Association and the Police Executive Research Forum.

     

The Maryland Transportation Authority Police, a nationally accredited force, is the seventh-largest law-enforcement agency in the State, with more than 600 sworn and civilian law-enforcement professionals. MDTA Police officers provide law enforcement at the MDTAs highways, bridges and tunnels; at the Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport; and at the Port of Baltimore.

NOTE: If you choose to use an acronym, please refer to Maryland Transportation Authority as MDTA.  Thank you.
