RIPAC ACCREDITATION AWARD  
POSTED SEPTEMBER 6, 2016
On September 1st, 2016 the Glocester Police Department was awarded Rhode Island State Accreditation by RIPAC Board Member Smithfield Police Chief Richard St. Sauveur and Executive Director Christine Crocker. This was the culmination of three years of dedicated work by the department to meet over 161 standards established by the RIPAC Commission. Rhode Island in-state accreditation was developed in 2012 as a way of providing the tools necessary for police agencies to evaluate and improve their overall performance.

This was a self-initiated process by the Glocester Police Department to voluntarily increase professionalism and strive to meet and adopt the best practices established by the police profession nationally. On May 26, 2016 a team of RIPAC assessors reviewed all the department policies and procedures leading to this award.

The award was accepted by Chief Joseph DelPrete on behalf of the department prior to the Glocester Town Council meeting. The Town Council recognized Lieutenant Matthew Fague and Matthew Floor for their individual contributions to the accreditation process.
