Florida Corrections Accreditation Commission to Assess


Date: Feb. 24, 2017 PIO Number: 17-2-22

The Florida Corrections Accreditation Commission (FCAC) invites members of the Broward Sheriff’s Office and the general public to offer comments as part of their on-site accreditation assessment. The highly-prized three-year accreditation is recognition that BSO’s Pretrial Services Division meets the Commission’s standards of professional excellence.

A team of assessors from the FCAC will arrive on March 7th to examine the policies and procedures, management, operations and support services. The division has to comply with approximately 77 standards in order to receive accredited status. Many of the standards are related to organization and management, reporting, release and supervision, and general safety issues. A copy of the standards is available through BSO’s Public Information Office.

The assessment team will review written materials, interview individuals and visit offices and other places where compliance can be witnessed. Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of BSO’s Pretrial Services Division, they report back to the full Commission, which will then decide if the agency is to receive accredited status.

For more information regarding FCAC or for persons wishing to offer written comments about BSO’s ability to meet the standards of accreditation, please write: CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida 32302, or email to info@flaccreditation.org.
