June 22, 2017 City Council Regular Meeting (Amended June 20, 2017)
Plaque Presentation by Georgia Associations of Chiefs of Police Recognizing Re-Certification of the Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Police Department

Georgia Associations of Chiefs of Police (GACP) Certification is a progressive and time-proven way of helping law enforcement agencies calculate and improve their overall performances. The foundation of certification lies in the promulgation of standards containing a clear statement of professional objectives. SCMPD conducted a thorough self-analysis to determine how existing operations can be adapted to meet these objectives. When SCMPD had the procedures in place, a team of trained assessors verified that applicable standards have been successfully implemented. The process concluded with a decision by a joint executive committee that the SCMPD has met the requirements for certification.

GACP identified standards that are essential to the efficient and effective operation of law enforcement agencies.  The standards provide a detailed blueprint for professional enforcement. They are credible, realistic, flexible and effective.

Certification by SCMPD represents a significant professional achievement. Certification acknowledges the implementation of policies and procedures that are conceptually sound and operationally effective.
