Lexington Police Want To Know How You Think They're Doing

Sep 16, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Lexington citizens are being invited to share their thoughts and feelings about the local police department.  A public meeting is scheduled for tonight from 6 to 8 in the Urban County Council Chambers…its part of Lex PD’s national accreditation process. 

Spokesperson Sherelle Roberts says assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, or CALEA will be in Lexington for the next couple of days.

“They will be looking for public input so that they can hear it straight from the horse’s mouth so to say what kind of job we do here at the Lexington Police Department, so we’re asking folks to get involved in that.”

Roberts says the type of data to be gathered will run the gamut.

“They’ll be reviewing every single thing about the police department from our training to our customer service, to the kind of equipment, weapons, office equipment that we have. Everything that you can think of, they will be looking at it.”

Residents who can’t make tonight’s meeting can also take part in a call in session on Tuesday afternoon from 2 to 4.  The number to call is 258-3664.
