Warwick Police Department Headlines

Mayor Scott Avedisian and Colonel Stephen McCartney will hold a press conference to highlight an upcoming visit from a team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. as part of the process to reaccredit the police department and to encourage the public to offer their input. The event will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, in police department headquarters, 99 Veterans Memorial Drive.

On Sunday, August 2, the CALEA team will arrive to examine all aspects of the agency's policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services. The department's last such assessment was conducted in August 2012, after which it was awarded re-accredited status.

As part of the on-site assessment, agency personnel and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session to be held on Monday, August 3, 2015, at 6:00 pm. The session will be held in the Community Room located in the Warwick Police Department, 99 Veterans Memorial Drive, Warwick, Rhode Island

If for some reason, individuals cannot speak at the public information session, but would still like to provide comments to the assessment team, they may do so by telephone. The public may call (401) 468-4328 on Tuesday, August 4, 2015, between the hours of 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.

Persons wishing to offer written comments about the Warwick Police Department's ability to meet the standards for accreditation may write to: Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA), 13575 Heathcote Blvd, Suite 320, Gainesville, Virginia, 20155; or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
