February 7, 2020 – The City of Midland is pleased to announce that the Midland Police Department (MPD) has received accreditation from the Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police’s Michigan Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission (MLEAC). It is the 24th police department in the State of Michigan to receive this recognition.

The voluntary accreditation process, which took MPD over two years to complete, reviewed the Department’s policies and procedures, management operations, and support services against 105 standards to ensure their compliance with best practices in law enforcement. The process included a series of on-site interviews and a written materials review by a team of assessors and public input from community members.

Accreditation from the MLEAC verifies that a law enforcement agency’s operations are fair, effective, and conceptually sound.

“Receiving this accreditation from the MLEAC speaks to the incredibly high standards of transparency, accountability, and professionalism to which we hold our department,” said MPD Chief Nicole Ford. “I am grateful to former Chief Cliff Block for initiating this accreditation process, as well as to our officers for their intense dedication and teamwork as they worked to complete this accreditation and to earn it every day through their exemplary service to the Midland community.”

Accreditation from the Michigan Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission is valid for three years. A formal presentation detailing this achievement is anticipated to occur at an upcoming Midland City Council meeting.
