The Port Huron Police Department is proudly recognized as a nationally and state accredited agency through CALEA since 1995 and MACP since 2018. The Port Huron Police Department is scheduled for reaccreditation and will need to go through the evaluation to achieve the status of accredited. This process is overseen by the Michigan Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission (MLEAC) which assigns assessors to review the agency on-site and recommends approval or rejection to the commission.
Over the past three years, agency personnel has worked hard to meet the stringent standards set forth by the commission. This process has been completed and the Port Huron Police Department is scheduled to have its MLEAC on-site assessment for reaccreditation on Tuesday, December 1 and Wednesday, December 2, 2020. The two assessors will review files, policies and procedures, conduct interviews with key personnel, and meet with local businesses and dignitaries, in an effort to thoroughly evaluate the Police Department.
Citizens, businesses and organizations are welcome to call the assessors directly and discuss the operations of the Police Department on December 1, 2020 from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. Interested callers can reach the assessors at (810) 985-0141.
The Port Huron Police Department appreciates the support of our citizens and welcomes comments, both positive and negative, to better improve our policing efforts. If anyone has any questions regarding the on-site or the accreditation process, they can contact Chief Joseph Platzer or Captain Marcy Kuehn at (810) 984-9710.
