Accreditation: Should Wildlife Law Enforcement Participate?

The concept of accreditation for law enforcement agencies became a reality in 1983 when the first agencies were accredited with the newly formed Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. Accreditation provides a means for all law enforcement agencies, regardless of primary function, to document their commitment to the furtherance of professionalism in services provided to the public.
