Sheriff Mike Jansen and Chief Deputy Ken Fecher received the Certificate of Accreditation for the Campbell County sheriff’s Office from 2017 Kentucky Sheriff’s Association President, Kevin Corman, Jessamine County Sheriff, at the 2017 Kentucky Sheriff’s Association Training Conference. The presentation was made on Thursday, September 14th, 2017. Accreditation is granted by the Kentucky Association of Chiefs of Police and is a highly regarded accreditation program. The process took over a year to complete and puts the Campbell County Sheriff in a group of only 18 Sheriff’s Offices that are accredited out of 120 Kentucky county sheriffs offices.
The Kentucky Association of Chief’s of Police Accreditation Program is intended to provide law enforcement agencies of the Commonwealth with an avenue for demonstrating that they meet commonly accepted professional standards for efficient and effective operations.
Law Enforcement executives who choose to have their agencies accredited under this program have examined all aspects of their operations. They have made conscious decisions about policies and procedures that fit the law enforcement requirements of their jurisdictions and have implemented those policies and trained their employees in their use.
Accreditation reflects that the agency was carefully measured against an established set of standards and has met or exceeded professionally accepted practices in law enforcement.
