Immediate Release                                                    (Phone # 239-590-1918):




Florida Gulf Coast University Police Department:  A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will arrive April 18, 2017 to examine all aspects of the University Police Department’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services.  The Florida Gulf Coast University Police Department has to comply with approximately 260 standards in order to receive accredited status.  Many of the standards are critical to life, health and safety issues.

 As part of the on-site assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team.  A copy of the standards is available through the University Police Department contact: James Slapp, Lieutenant (Phone 239-590-1918)

 For more information regarding CFA or for persons wishing to offer written comments about the University Police Department’s ability to meet the standards of accreditation, please write:

CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida  32302, or email to

 The Accreditation Program Manager for Florida Gulf Coast University Police Department is Billy Walls of CFA.  He said the assessment team is composed of law enforcement practitioners from similar agencies.  The assessors will review written materials; interview individuals; and visit offices and other places where compliance can be witnessed.  The CFA Assessment Team Leader is Chief Robert Vincent of the Gulfport Police Department.  Other team members are Officer Briggid Larson of the West Palm Beach Police Department and Special Agent Chris Middleton of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

 Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full Commission, which will then decide if the agency is to receive accredited status.  The Florida Gulf Coast University Police Department’s accreditation is for 3 years.  Verification by the team that the University Police Department meets the Commission’s standards is part of a voluntary process to gain or maintain accreditation--a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence, said Chief Steven Moore of the Florida Gulf Coast University Police Department.
