A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will arrive April 4, 2023 to examine all aspects of the Daytona Beach Police Department (DBPD) policies and procedures, management, operations and support services. DBPD has to comply with numerous standards in order to receive accredited status. Many of the standards are critical to life, health, safety issues and best practices.
As part of the assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team. A copy of the standards manual is available on CFA's website.
For more information regarding CFA or for persons wishing to offer written comments about DBPD's ability to meet the standards of accreditation, please send correspondence to:
Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation
P.O. Box 1489
Tallahassee, Florida 32302
Or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The assessment team is composed of assessors from similar agencies. The assessors will review written materials, interview individuals and visit offices and other areas where compliance can be observed. The assessment team will be led by Deborah Furka of the St. Petersburg Police Department.
Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they report to the full Commission, which then determines if the agency is to receive accredited or reaccredited status. DBPD’s accreditation is valid for three years. Verification by the team that DBPD meets the Commission’s standards is part of a voluntary process to gain or maintain accreditation--a highly prized recognition of professional excellence. The Daytona Beach Police Department has been accredited since February 1999.
