On September 27, 2012, the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) unanimously voted to award re-accreditation status to the City of Bradenton Police Department during their Fall Conference, which was held in Sarasota, Fl.
The City of Bradenton Police Department was originally accredited in 2003, and has been in full compliance for the past nine years. The City of Bradenton Police Department’s Full Compliance On-Site Assessment Report (July 25, – 27, 2012), remarked that the Bradenton Police Department was in compliance with 215 applicable standards, with no discrepancies. CFA Team Leader, Captain Mark Foxworth of the Fernandina Beach Police Department stated, “All agency members were found to be knowledgeable of the accreditation process, and to have embraced the process as part of their daily duties and delivery of law enforcement services.”
“This process is just validation that the men and women of the City of Bradenton Police Department continuously demonstrate excellence, and professionalism by complying with up to date polices and procedures that are set forth by the law enforcement accrediting body for the State of Florida,” said Bradenton Police Chief Michael Radzilowski.
