Mayor commends Columbia Police Department

By Mayor Steve Benjamin

Columbia Police Department has been awarded an Advanced Law Enforcement Accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).

Under the leadership of Chief Skip Holbrook and Deputy Chief Melron Kelly, this achievement signifies CPD’s commitment to professional excellence. The CALEA accreditation is only awarded after an extensive, comprehensive, and voluntary process focusing on the areas of policy, procedure, operations, and management.

Columbia has been a leader in the nation in 21st Century Policing. We remain grateful for the men and women who serve and protect our city, and we thank CPD for their steadfast commitment to policing excellence.
