Ozark Police begins MPCCF reaccreditation process

pd accreditaton 2024

Ozark, Mo - The Ozark Police Department was evaluated today to receive its accreditation from the Missouri Police Chiefs Charitable Foundation for the third time.

Two assessors from the foundation paid an on-site visit to OPD to examine patrol operations, professional standards, training, facility, equipment, and fleet. 

The Missouri Police Chiefs Charitable Foundation Accreditation is a voluntary program Ozark Police enters into to receive outside oversight over policies, procedures, and operations. This third-party oversight ensures the department is consistent with best practices and industry standards. Ozark Police complies with 208 standards to maintain its certification. 

Participating in this voluntary program and receiving the accreditation represents the department's commitment to excellence in policing and shows its dedication to the community it serves. It affirms community-oriented policing, fiscal responsibility, and personnel management.

The evaluation happens every three years. Ozark Police was initially certified in 2017 and recertified in 2020. 

The on-site visit is just one element of the re-accreditation process. Ozark Police hopes to hear back from the Missouri Police Chiefs' Charitable Foundation on its re-accreditation in the Spring.
