JCPD Awarded Law Enforcement Accreditation

Nashville, TN- The Tennessee Law Enforcement Accreditation (TLEA) Program is pleased to announce that it has granted accreditation status to the Jefferson City Police Department. They were awarded this achievement during the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police (TACP) meeting held in Franklin, TN on April 3,2019.

To achieve accreditation with TLEA, an agency voluntarily submits to a three-year process of enhancing the agency’s professionalism and effectiveness utilizing 160 law enforcement standards and participating in a thorough on-site assessment. The standards evaluate an agency’s policies which address a variety of areas including organizational, operational and budget management practices. The program is intended to encourage cooperation, recognize professional standing, develop professional services and ensure public safety throughout the State of Tennessee. The TLEA program is a valuable and cost-effective way to enhance overall agency effectiveness and professionalism.

The Jefferson City Police Department successfully accomplished TLEA accreditation by meeting criteria that measured the professionalism, organizational, and overall readiness in law enforcement policy and procedures. “The standard of excellence that is met through this process is to be admired. We are proud to recognize the hard work of the Jefferson City Police Department, its staff and community leaders,” stated TACP President Randy Evans.
“Thank you to the outstanding men and women of the JCPD team who worked hard toward this goal. Many individuals and outside agencies contributed and assisted, and to those we are grateful”, Chief Andy Dossett said. “This has strengthened the department in many ways, making us more uniform and standardized through the implementation of solid police practices and policies that have been and will be accomplished through training, education, and common sense”, said Dossett.

The TLEA program was created under the direction and authority of the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police, which supports and endorses the continued improvement of law enforcement and emergency communications operations. This program provides a framework for Tennessee law enforcement agencies to have equal access to effective and comprehensive polices that enhance the professionalism of law enforcement and the safety of our communities.

The TLEA Accreditation status represents a significant professional achievement and acknowledges the successful implementation of written directives, policies, and procedures that conceptually sound and operationally effective. It takes commitment, dedication, and hard work from the agency head, agency personnel and community leaders to meet the standards prescribed by the program.

Tommy was a part time officer with our department for four years and worked as much or more than the full time guys.

It didn’t matter what time of day it was, when you needed him, Tommy would be there. Tommy served 8 years as Constable of Chestnut Hill before going to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department full time where he retired several years later. Tommy touched the lives of everyone he came into contact with and will be sadly missed by everyone who knew him.
