The Town of Manlius has been a Nationally and State Accredited Agency since 1996 and gone through the process of reaccreditation every 3 years through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) and every 5 years through New York State.
CALEA provides a proven management model that provides the framework to ensure:
Community advocacy and involvement
Efficient use of resources and service delivery improvements
Policies and practices that are consistently reviewed and updated
Reduced risk and liability exposure through policy and internationally accepted best practices
Verification from independent outside assessors to ensure trust and transparency
In 2010, the Town of Manlius received the coveted Flagship Status which identifies this agency and its members as exemplary examples of law enforcement service. In 2014, this agency was awarded the "Certificate of Advanced Meritorious Accreditation" in recognition of our more than 15 years of continuous accreditation status.

The New York State Accreditation Program is a process that continues to evolve with changing legal, social and fiscal developments. The process continuously evaluates and updates commonly accepted standards and provides a progressive and time proven way to improve overall performance.
