Kentucky accreditation seal

An Accreditation Program has long been recognized as a means of maintaining the highest standards of professionalism. Accreditation is the certification by an independent reviewing authority that an entity has met specific requirements and prescribed standards.

The Elsmere Police Department is an Accredited Law Enforcement Agency. We received Accreditation from the Kentucky Association of Chiefs of Police in 2013. Accreditation is an organizational commitment to maintaining the high standards and best practices that are expected of professional law enforcement. Accreditation reduces liability, ensures accountability and increases community confidence and trust. The Elsmere Police Department continues to meet or exceed these professional standards for efficient and effective practices in law enforcement.
