Accredited Agencies

Professional Standards exist to enable CACP and CSOC members to achieve a “Professional” status. The adoption of minimum professional standards is necessary for Colorado Police and Sheriff Organizations to achieve the status of “Professional”. CACP/CSOC through the Professional Standards Committee safeguard the integrity of the accreditation process for their members by utilizing professionally accepted methods for CACP/CSOC professional accreditation. The CACP/CSOC exists to assess law enforcement operations of applicant agencies. Agencies that provide detention services are encouraged to attain professional accreditation through other accrediting entities for such services.

Professional Standards are statements of minimum requirements adopted by CACP/CSOC with the intent to more clearly define the role and responsibilities of a Colorado Peace Officer and to enhance the quality of services provided. Professional Standards at a minimum incorporate a Professional Code of Ethics, minimum professional standard requirements, and a recognized body of knowledge. Practitioner expertise is acquired through the study of these minimum standards translating to professional law enforcement services.
