Miami Twp. aims to regain police certification after 2 decades

The Miami Twp. Police Department is seeking a designation it hasn’t earned in about 25 years, and what happens in the coming days will play a key role in that quest.

Sunday begins a three-day, on-site assessment by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, according to the township.

Accreditation by CALEA is widely-recognized as one of the high designations law enforcement agencies can earn and a status Miami Twp. has not attained since about 1992, Police Chief Ron Hess said.
