Awards and Accreditations

Kentucky Association of Chief’s of Police Accreditation Program

The Kentucky Association of Chief’s of Police Accreditation Program is intended to provide law enforcement agencies of the Commonwealth with an avenue for demonstrating that they meet commonly accepted professional standards for efficient and effective operations. 

Law Enforcement executives who choose to have their agencies accredited under this program have examined all aspects of their operations.  They have made conscious decisions about policies and procedures that fit the law enforcement requirements of their jurisdictions and have implemented those policies and trained their employees in their use. 

Accreditation reflects that the agency was carefully measured against an established set of standards and has met or exceeded professionally accepted practices in law enforcement.  In July 2008 the Bowling Green Police Department received it's fourth Five-Year Certification.  Bowling Green Police is only one of two department's in the Commonwealth to receive this fourth consecutive accreditation.
