[ARCHIVED] Key West Police Department Recognizes the City's Facilities Maintenance Team

Key West Police Challenge Coin

Capt. Jason Castillo presented the City's Facilities Maintenance Team with a plaque in gratitude for their continued support in keeping the police station in shape.  The crew went the extra mile this spring, ensuring everything worked perfectly when the inspectors came for the department's reaccreditation.  This team effort earned the Key West Police Department an Excelsior level reaccreditation and recognition for five assessments that found no flaws.

In April, a team of state assessors spent three days scrutinizing all aspects of the department to ensure it meets the highest level of best practices standards for the state.  Accreditation sets a high level of professionalism in a law enforcement agency. It's a voluntary process that allows the department to constantly measure itself based on standards set by its peers across the state.  The assessments are conducted every three years, but the process is a daily practice in every officer's career. It allows each to remain familiar with the department's policies and ensures the most professional department possible.  Accreditation ensures the community a knowledgeable police department that provides the very best service possible to the community.

Thanking FMT
