Accreditation status represents a significant professional achievement. It is an honor that many law enforcement agencies have not achieved. The Grand Blanc Township Police Department was the first municipal agency in Genesee County to earn this status and the nineteenth agency in the State of Michigan.
The Michigan Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission (M.L.E.A.C.) program enhances the professionalism of police organizations across the state. Accreditation is a progressive and time proven way of assisting law enforcement agencies to calculate and improve their overall performance. The foundation of Accreditation lies in the voluntary adoption and compliance with 108 “best practice” policing standards containing a clear statement of professional objectives.
In 2016 the Grand Blanc Township Police Department began the process of becoming an accredited agency. In 2018 a team of trained M.L.E.A.C. assessors verified that the department successfully implemented the applicable standards and that we were in compliance with those standards. Every three (3) years M.L.E.A.C. assessors will revisit the department to ensure that we remain in compliance.
While accreditation is truly a team effort and embraced by the entire department the accreditation process is led by our Accreditation Managers Lt. Bill Renye and Cheri Potter.
