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.
The assessment will include an opportunity for agency employees and those living and working in the city to offer comments and attend a public forum.
Comments can be made from 2 to 4 p.m. Monday by calling 937-531-4004. The public forum is set for 5:30 p.m. Monday at the Miami Twp. Administration Building, 2700 Lyons Road.
