ACCREDITATION TEAM INVITES PUBLIC COMMENTS
Accreditation is the certification by an independent reviewing authority that an entity has met specific requirements and prescribed standards.
Law enforcement agencies can attain accredited status through the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation, Inc.
Our Juno Beach Police Department is currently seeking to be accredited by the Commission.
A team of assessors will be on site beginning December 6th, 2022 to examine all aspects of the agency’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services. To receive accredited status the Juno Beach Police Department must comply with numerous standards, many of which are critical to life, health, safety issues, and best practices.
As part of the assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to review the standards manual and to offer comments.
The manager of the accreditation program for Juno Beach is Lieutenant Mark G. Saloio. Lt. Saloio commented that "the assessment team is composed of assessors from similar agencies. They will review written materials, interview individuals, and visit offices and other areas where compliance can be observed."
Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they report to the full Commission, which then determines if the agency is to receive accredited or reaccredited status. The Juno Beach Police Department’s accreditation is valid for three years.
Commenting on the Accreditation process Chief of Police Brian Smith said "Verification by the team that our Juno Beach Police Department meets the Commission’s standards is part of a voluntary process to gain or maintain accreditation -- a highly prized recognition of professional excellence.
For more information regarding the Commission for Accreditation or to offer written comments about the Juno Beach Police Department’s ability to meet the standards of accreditation, please send correspondence to: Commission for Florida Accreditation, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida, 32302, or send email to email@example.com

Drug Take-back Day Successful!
The DEA sponsored Drug Take-back Day in Juno Beach was held on October 29th in the parking lot of the Police Department.
Detective Ryan Hoffmann, along with our Police Volunteers and representatives of the Police Foundation were present throughout much of the day and received over 30 pounds of unused, expired, and no longer needed prescription drugs. Nationwide the DEA collected over 700,000 pounds.
The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, which takes place twice each year, aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while at the same time educating the public about the potential for abuse of medications.
The DEA’s next National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is scheduled for April 2023.
