Morehead City police work toward re-accreditation

Posted: Updated:
MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. -

The Morehead City Police Department is under strict review as it works toward re-accreditation.

The department is having its policies, procedures, and operations examined this week.

A group of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies will look at what the police are doing and what they can do better to help control crime.

The assessors will be in town from August 4 to August 7.

They say accreditation helps hold the police accountable.

"Of the 18,000 law enforcement agencies, just about 1,000 are accredited. This strikes to the issues about how important it is," said James Carmody, an assessor.

The public is invited to offer comments about accreditation at a public information session at 6 PM on Monday.

You can also call the Morehead City Police Department at (252) 241-0946.
