Merrimack College Department of Police Services is Awarded Certification Status
Certification is a self-initiated evaluation process whereby departments endeavor to meet and maintain standards that have been established by the profession. These standards encompass areas of police management and operations, and technical support activities such as policy development, emergency response planning, training, communications, property and evidence handling, use of force, vehicular pursuit, prisoner transportation and holding facilities.
Rather than rest on our laurels, we will be moving forward to become Accredited through MPAC. Only 28 Massachusetts Police Departments have reached this level to date.
We would like to thank the administration for their wholehearted support.
