TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Florida Department of Law Enforcement held a public information session on Wednesday.

The session is apart of their accreditation inspection.

According to officials, FDLE must comply with 484-standards to maintain its status.

They say, the process provides confidence for management and the public and allows the department to continue maintaining high standards.

"The citizens of Florida they expect law enforcement officers to recognize accreditation and how important it is to the law enforcement agency," said Major David Munday, Enforcement Accreditation Team Leader. "Your universities are accredited, your medical facilities are accreditation, and law enforcement is no different its just a good solid business model."

Once the assessors complete their review, they report back to the full Commission, which determines accreditation for a three year period.
