The Spring Hill Police Department recently accepted its first re-accreditation from the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police (TACP).
The SHPD was accredited initially in 2015. The TACP Law Enforcement Accreditation Program is intended to provide Tennessee law enforcement agencies an avenue to advance the science and the art of police services by demonstrating that throughout the state commonly accepted standards are for the development and improvement of these services. Standards that are set forth in this program are not the maximum or minimum standards, but are standards that will set apart agencies that wish to encourage and adhere to high professional standards furthering the law enforcement profession.
These professional standards are a reflection of law enforcement agencies throughout the State of Tennessee and will enhance and assist each department in the operation and practices to promote and encourage adherence of all police officers to high professional standards of conduct and performance. The Law Enforcement Accreditation Program is administered by the TACP – Professional Standards Committee and is intended to encourage cooperation, recognize professional standing, encourage professional services and ensure public safety throughout the State of Tennessee. This program is a valuable and cost effective way to enhance overall agency effectiveness and professionalism.
