Accreditation team invites public comments about the Sarasota Police Department

Post Date:02/14/2023 9:06 AM

A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will arrive on March 21, 2023, to examine all aspects of the Sarasota Police Department’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services.  The Sarasota Police Department has to comply with numerous standards to receive accredited status, and many standards are critical to life, health, safety issues, and best practices.  The Accreditation Manager for the Sarasota Police Department is Marissa Moore.

The CFA assessment team comprises law enforcement practitioners from similar agencies throughout Florida.  The assessors will review written materials, interview individuals, and visit offices and other places where compliance can be observed.

As part of the on-site assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team.  A standards copy is available online at under the standards tab.  For more information regarding CFA or for citizens wishing to offer written comments about the Sarasota Police Department’s ability to meet the standards of accreditation, please send correspondence to: CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida  32302, or email to

Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they will report back to the full Commission, which then determines if the agency is to receive accredited status.  This verification by the team that the Sarasota Police Department meets the Commission’s standards is a highly prized recognition of professional excellence.

The Sarasota Police Department’s accreditation is valid for three years.
