The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of a program to maintain accredited status by verifying it meets professional standards. A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will arrive on August 24, 2021. The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office was initially accredited in 2000, and reaccredited in 2003, 2006, 2009, 2012, 2015 and 2018.
Administered by the CFA, the voluntary accreditation program requires agencies to comply with state-of-the-art standards which cover the areas of policy and procedures, administration, operations, and support services. The agency must comply with approximately 245 standards, many of which are critical to life, health, and safety issues, to maintain accredited status.
As part of the on-site assessment, agency members and the public are invited to submit written comments regarding the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office’s ability to comply with the standards of accreditation. For more information regarding the assessment or to submit comments, please contact:
