The Jacksonville State University Police Department is nationally accredited under the guidelines of the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). The Accreditation Commission was formed for two reasons - 1) to develop a set of law enforcement standards, and 2) to establish and administer an accreditation process through which law enforcement agencies could demonstrate voluntarily that they meet professionally-recognized criteria for excellence in management and service delivery.

The Jacksonville State University Police Department is one of the smallest full-service law enforcement agencies to be accredited by CALEA. We were awarded our initial accreditation in November 1997. We received our most recent re-accreditation in November of 2015.
