On December 1, Virginia ABC’s Bureau of Law Enforcement received accreditation from the Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards Commission putting it in an elite group of Virginia’s enforcement agencies. The accreditation program, administered through the state’s Department of Criminal Justice Services, is a thorough inspection and review of agency policies, procedures, processes and operations as defined by 190 stringent standards. Four performance areas including administration, operations, personnel and training are carefully evaluated against established criteria by an independent panel of certified assessors. In order to maintain accreditation, the agency will be reassessed every four years.
