Farmington Public Safety is among 34 Michigan agencies accredited by the Michgian Association of Chiefs of Police (MACP). The department was awarded accreditation in 2018 and re-accreditation in 2021.
Accreditation is a progressive and time-proven way of helping law enforcement agencies calculate and improve their overall performance. The foundation of Accreditation lies in the adoption of standards containing a clear statement of professional objectives, while ensuring transparency and accountability. Participating agencies conduct a thorough self-analysis to determine how existing operations can be adapted to meet these objectives. When the procedures are in place, a team of trained assessors verifies that applicable standards have been successfully implemented.
