The Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association's Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation Program can be time consuming, labor intensive, and require resources that may be unavailable to a law enforcement agency within the Commonwealth. Law Enforcement Accreditation Services can assist an agency with their desire to become an accredited law enforcement agency or retain their existing accreditation status by providing the following accreditation services to an agency:
In addition, if a agency is not ready to become an accredited law enforcement agency and seeks instead to simply have an updated policy manual, Law Enforcement Accreditation Services can provide this service as well.
Law enforcement agencies across the Commonwealth are being mandated to increase the services provided to their community, but with stagnant or decreased funding. By applying for grants, law enforcement executives are better able to manage the demands placed onto their agency. By successfully obtaining grant awards, law enforcement executives can purchase or maintain needed equipment and technology, conduct training, and hire consulting services and personnel. In Pennsylvania, a significant amount of money is available for law enforcement agencies to obtain through law enforcement equipment and technology manufacturers, the United States Department of Justice, and the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, amongst others.
Many law enforcement executives do not apply for grants because they are unfamiliar with the grant application process or do not have the personnel with the skill set and time to apply for a grant. Grant writing is a niche and applying for a grant is a very competitive process that requires careful preparation and attention to detail.

A properly designed police station is vital to the long-term functionality of it. To ensure that any police station renovations or new construction meet the needs of your agency, it is important to solicit input from a variety of stakeholders. These stakeholders include, but are not limited to select agency personnel, municipal administrators, elected officials, and members of the public. Prior to any renovations or new construction taking place, a committee of qualified individuals must be established, a list of prioritized goals and objectives created, and a comprehensive budget that is accompanied by a realistic schedule formed. Ultimately a presentation of the plan, which includes committee findings and requests, will have to be submitted to an approving authority.
