Last week at the GACP (Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police) conference in Savannah, Carrollton Police Department was honored with the Meritorious Gold Award for being a state certified agency for more than 20 uninterrupted years.
Certification status represents a significant professional achievement for a law enforcement agency and acknowledges the implementation of policies and procedures conceptually sound and operationally effective. Certification is about best practices and provides a comprehensive blueprint for effective, professional law enforcement.
CPD has been a state certified agency since 1999. Pictured is Chief Joel Richards and GACP Executive Director, Butch Ayers.
