In this Mayor’s Report, I provide an update on the City’s successful Mental Health Response Program, established last year to support our first responders and to improve outcomes for individuals needing mental health services.
I also discuss the longtime accreditation of our police department by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. The Shaker Heights Police Department is seeking re-accreditation for the 34th year. Only some 4 % of all law enforcement agencies in the U.S. are awarded CALEA certification, which involves an extra layer of voluntary scrutiny of department policies, procedures, and outcomes in order to meet an established set of professional standards.
