CALEA is a national organization that provides accreditation to law enforcement agencies if they have demonstrated a consistent adherence to best-practice standards.  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.

Initial accreditation for the Maricopa Police Department occured in March, 2015.  The accreditation is the culmination of five years of internal- and self-assessment by members of the department to ensure that policies and procedures reflect optimum standards in policing.  The Maricopa Police Department is one of nine municipal law enforcement agencies in Arizona that is CALEA accredited.  Maricopa Police Department is the newest and second smallest agency to recieve accreditation in the state.
