Chief Dennis Koletsos and the members of the Northlake Police Department are proud to announce the department’s award of Advanced Reaccreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). The November 16, 2013 award was received at the Commission’s National Conference in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. This prestigious award is granted to applicant law enforcement agencies that have proven, through policy and practice that they have met or exceeded national standards recognized by the commission, which reflect excellence in policing as well as adherence to modern management concepts.  The process consists of both an offsite and onsite assessment of agency policy and practices by a CALEA Assessment Team, and a hearing before CALEA Commissioners at their National Conference.

Northlake Police Department is proud to be amongst a small number of agencies throughout Illinois and the United States who have earned the Advanced Accreditation Award.  Such an award is a credit to the agency, City officials, residents and business community.  The Northlake Police Department is committed to providing the highest level of police services available to the community and look forward to proving such acclaim through future accreditation processes.

Chief Koletsos recognizes the hard work and dedication of Northlake Police employees: “It is through the commitment and achievement of exemplary services by the members of the Northlake Police Department that such an award can be realized.”
