LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - For the seventh, consecutive time the Lexington Division of Police has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA).

Lexington Police Chief Ronnie Bastin and Assistant Police Chief Robert Stack accepted the accreditation during an award ceremony recently in North Carolina.

Officially granted on November 16, 2013, the reaccreditation came after a stringent audit and review of Division of Police policies and operations—in October 2013— by a team of external assessors. This accreditation is for three years.

According to CALEA officials the accreditation is a sign to Lexington residents that they have a world-class police agency.

A letter to Chief Ronnie Bastin said of the accreditation, it represents “your agency’s ongoing acceptance of the obligation to continue the quest for professional excellence…we commend you and the Lexington Division of Police for demonstrating commitment to professional standards in policy and practice”.
