TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will conduct an assessment for re-accreditation of the Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco’s Bureau of Law Enforcement.

The CFA assessment team will examine all aspects of the Bureau’s policies and procedures, management, operations and support services. The re-accreditation process is voluntary and occurs every three years.

The CFA assessment team is composed of law enforcement practitioners from other Florida law enforcement agencies. The assessors will review written materials, interview agency members and visit offices and other facilities where standards compliance can be observed.

The Division is required to comply with more than 190 accreditation standards in order to maintain accredited status. A copy of the accreditation standards may be requested by contacting the Division’s Accreditation Manager, Jennifer Jacques, at 850-717-1111.

As part of the on-site assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team. Comments must be in writing and must address the agency’s ability to comply with CFA standards. Members of the public seeking more information regarding the CFA or wishing to offer written comments about the Division’s ability to meet the standards of accreditation may contact the CFA at P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida 32302 or via email at
