The Duke University Campus Police Department is a nationally accredited law enforcement agency.  On April 2, 2016, the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) awarded accredited status to the Duke University Campus Police Department following an intense review of department procedures and policies. The Duke University Campus Police Department maintains its accredited status by demonstrating continuous compliance with the law enforcement standards set forth by CALEA.

Accreditation Public Comment Portal

The purpose of this public portal is to receive comments regarding an agency's compliance with CALEA standards, engagement in the service community, delivery of public safety services, and overall candidacy for accredited status. These comments can be in the form of commendations or concerns. The overall intent of the accreditation process is to provide the participating agency with information to support continuous improvement, as well as foster the pursuit of professional excellence. 

IMPORTANT: CALEA is not an investigatory body and subsequently the public portal should not be used to submit information for such purposes.  Additionally, there will be no response other than acknowledgement to submissions; however, the information will be considered in context to its relevancy to compliance with standards and the tenets of CALEA® Accreditation.
