Monday - 8/6/2012, 12:08pm  ET

WOODBRIDGE, Va. - The Prince William County Police Department is being examined by assessors from a national law enforcement group.

Assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies are visiting the county's training academy this week. Next week, the department as a whole will be assessed for re-accreditation.

The department was last accredited by CALEA three years ago. The examination ensures that the department's standards and procedures are consistent and up to date with national standards.
