Hoover Police is nationally accredited through CALEA

The Hoover Police Department has been nationally accredited through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement (CALEA) in November 2022.  The accreditation program requires agencies to comply with nationally established best practice standards in four basic areas: policy and procedures, administration, operations, and support services.

Hoover PD is among an elite group of law enforcement agencies in receiving the prestigious accreditation. Nationally, accreditation is obtained by only about 5% of all law enforcement agencies. In Alabama, we are one of just 13 municipal law enforcement agencies with CALEA accreditation.

The Hoover Police Department invites the public to offer comments, commendations, and other information regarding the Police Department’s quality of service or other information relevant to the accreditation process on the CALEA Public Comment Portal.

It is essential to know that CALEA is not an investigatory body; subsequently, the Public Comment Portal should not be used to submit information for such purposes.  Additionally, there will be no response other than acknowledgment to submissions; however, the information will be considered in context to its relevancy to compliance with standards and the tenets of CALEA® Accreditation. 

If you have questions about our agency, standards, or the process, please contact: Lieutenant Katy Webb, Accreditation Manager
