WMPD Earns Reaccreditation
The Wilton Manors Police Department has been officially reaccredited by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation. To earn the award, the WMPD had to comply with about 260 standards. The process, held every three years, is a review of the police department, its personnel and policies by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation. The benefits of accreditation, say WMPD officials, includes more efficient use of staffing and equipment through best practices adopted through the accreditation. “This is one of the proudest moments of my career,” said WMPD Accreditation Manager Doug Robertson. The reaccreditation lasts until 2019 and then the WMPD will have to reapply.
A forum, featuring all the judicial candidates running for election and re-election, will be held on Wednesday, July 20 at 7 p.m. in the Hagen Park Community Center, 2020 Wilton Drive. Elections for judges will be held August 30.
