The reaccreditation was awarded Saturday (July 30). This is the ninth time the department has been granted meritorious reaccreditation.

PINELLAS COUNTY – The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office was awarded reaccreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies on Saturday (July 30) in Baltimore, MD.

CALEA auditors visited the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office from March 1 to 4 and wrote a detailed report submitting their findings to the accreditation commission. The CALEA commission later convened and for the ninth time granted meritorious reaccreditation status to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.

Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office Assistant Chief Sean Jowell, Commander of the Professional Standards Bureau Captain Ray Whiteley, and Commander of the Policy Development and Accreditation Division Lt. Stacey Barrentine, represented the Sheriff’s Office and accepted the accreditation before a panel of CALEA commissioners who reviewed the report.

The accreditation process is a proven management model and a blueprint for self-improvement, which strengthens accountability, both within the agency itself and externally throughout the community.

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office has been accredited since 1988 and is one of fewer than 30 sheriff’s offices in the U.S. (there are more than 3,100 sheriff’s offices nationwide) to have received the Triple Crown Award for being CALEA, ACA (Corrections) and NCCHC (Corrections Healthcare) accredited. Reaccreditation occurs every four years.
