Police Department Receives Commission on Law Enforcement Accreditation

On November 16, 2019, the New Canaan Police Department was issued its 9th CALEA (Commission of Law Enforcement Accreditation )Award.

Our Department is proud to be one of only three CALEA accredited local police departments in Fairfield County.

Additionally, less than five percent of all police departments across the United States are CALEA accredited.

The Accreditation Team consisting of Sergeant Brian Mitchell, Sergeant David Payne, and every sworn and civilian member of our Department contributed to this effort. Their work each day helped our agency achieve excellence.  See the attached letter from Chief Krolikowski detailing the award.
