Over the weekend, the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement agencies arrived to examine all aspects of the Lafayette Police Department.
Monday the community was invited to attend a public information session that allowed them to submit comments to the assessment team. The meeting was held at the LCG headquarters.
The meeting was part of a three year long accreditation process under which the department must show compliance with a set of national law enforcement standards that address everything from training and record keeping, to evidence processing and traffic patrols.
The Lafayette Police Department has to comply with 467 standards in order to gain accredited status.
