For the seventh straight year, the Lexington Division of Police has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA).

The accreditation came after a stringent audit and review of Division of Police policies and operations by a team of external assessors.

The accreditation is for three years.

According to CALEA officials, the accreditation is a sign to people in Lexington that they have a world-class police agency.

Lexington Police Chief Ronnie Bastin and Assistant Police Chief Robert Stack accepted the accreditation during an award ceremony in North Carolina.
