Virginia ABC’s Bureau of Law Enforcement earned its first re-accreditation in 2019 from the Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards commission (VLEPSC) and met every standard of compliance during its assessment. "This is a testament to the hard work of our leadership team and our agents," Virginia ABC Chief Law Enforcement Office Tom Kirby said. "I want to thank everyone for their dedication to upholding public trust and adhering to the VLESPC standards. It is a great achievement to be re-accredited."
The assessment team visited three regional offices and conducted inspections at each office. The formal assessment was held at the Richmond Regional Office and included a ride-along portion, inspections of the static display and evidence room, an agency tour and the file review. At the end, Virginia ABC was compliant in all 184 applicable standards.
