Chevy Chase Village Police Seeks Re-Accreditation

The Chevy Chase Village Police Department is looking for public comment on its performance during a three-day re-accreditation process set for April.

On Monday, April 8, beginning at 6 p.m. at the Village Hall (5906 Connecticut Ave.) assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc., will be available to hear from Department employees and the public.

The assessors will be in town for three days starting on April 7 to do a review of the Department, then report back to the Commission, which will decide if the Department gets re-accreditation.

The accreditation covers three years and is “a highly prized recognition of public safety and professional excellence,” according to Chevy Chase Village Police Chief John Fitzgerald.

The assessors will also take public comments via phone, at 240-876-1493, between the hours of 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. on April 8.
