The Blount County 9-1-1 Center is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of a program to achieve accreditation by verifying 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 on four basic areas: policy and procedures, administration, operations, and support services.
As part of the on-site assessment employees and the public are invited to offer comments by calling (865) 981-7114 on Tuesday, April 7, 2015 between the hours of 1:30 p.m. and 3:30p.m. Comments will be taken by the assessment team.
Telephone comments are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with CALEA’s standards. A copy of the Standards is available the 9-1-1 Center at 1431 William Blount Dr. Maryville, TN. Local contact is Accreditation Manager Donna Burnette; 865-981-7116.
Anyone wishing to submit written comments about the Blount County 9-1-1 Center’s ability to comply with the standards for accreditation may send them to the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement, Inc. (CALEA), 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320, Gainesville, Virginia, 22030-2215 or www.calea.org.
