Inclusion into CALEA accreditation allows MPD to maintain professional excellence in terms of written directives, procedures, management decisions, preparedness, accountability, liability and risk exposure and relationship with the community.

The Maricopa Police Department is one of nine municipal law enforcement agencies in Arizona that is CALEA accredited.
