Brevard County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO):  A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will arrive on November 14, 2017 to examine all aspects of the Brevard County Sheriff’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services.  BCSO must comply with approximately 260 standards in order to receive accredited status.  Many of the standards are critical to life, health and safety issues.

As part of the assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team.  A copy of the standards manual is available via the CFA at the address below.

For more information regarding CFA or for persons wishing to offer written comments about the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office’ ability to meet the standards of accreditation, please write:

CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida 32302, or email to info@flaccreditation.org.

The Accreditation Program Manager for Brevard County Sheriff’s Office is Deborah Moody.  She advises that the assessment team is composed of law enforcement practitioners from similar agencies.  The assessors will review written materials; interview individuals; and visit offices and other areas where compliance can be witnessed.

Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full Commission, which will then determine if the agency is to receive accredited status.  The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office accreditation is valid for 3 years.  Verification by the team that BCSO meets the Commission’s standards is part of a voluntary process to gain or maintain accreditation.
