The Pennsylvania State Police is scheduled for a site-based assessment as part of a program to achieve accreditation to verify it meets professional standards.
Administered by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA®), the accreditation program requires agencies to comply with state-of-the-art standards in four basic areas: policy and procedures, administration, operations, and support services.
Members of the public are invited to post their comments on the Accreditation Public Comment Portal by visiting https://cimrs2.calea.org/321. Comments can be in the form of commendations for good performance, suggestions for improvement, or concerns.
Questions regarding PSP’s CALEA accreditation and associated standards can be directed to Major William McAreavy, Bureau of Research and Development, at 717-783-9772.
Newport Veterans Memorial Park Improvements
Newport Veterans Memorial Park in Newport received $77,418 in state funding to install walkways, making all attractions more accessible to visitors, especially those using wheelchairs, motorized scooters, and strollers. The grant came from the Commonwealth Financing Authority, an independent agency of the state Department of Community and Economic Development, through its Greenways, Trails, and Recreation Program.
Making Veterans Memorial Park more user-friendly benefits everyone, young and old, who enjoy coming to the grounds for outdoor and community activities. Walkways will help foster wellness and cultivate appreciation of our natural resources.
Local matching funds for the grant will be provided by Newport Revitalization & Preservation Society (NRPS).
