info@islandpacket.comNovember 11, 2012 

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office is seeking re-accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, a process that includes an on-site assessment and a public meeting.

Residents and employees can share comments on the Sheriff's Office compliance with CALEA standards at 6 p.m. Sunday at the Sheriff's Office training room, 2001 Duke St., Beaufort.

They also can comment by phone from 1 to 4 p.m. Nov. 20 at 843-255-3276 or submit written comments to the commission at 13575 Heathcote Blvd., Suite 320, Gainesville, Va.

To be re-accredited, the Sheriff's Office must meet standards regarding policies and procedures, administration, and support services. The Sheriff's Office earned its CALEA accreditation in July 2010.

The Island Packet is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
