The Eureka Police Department is a Missouri Police Chief’s Association (MPCA) accredited agency since 2016. In 2019 the department was re-accredited.
In order to receive accreditation, the police department must submit to annual documentation that shows the agency performs to a set of required standards. Every 3 years, an onsite-based assessment occurs where the MPCA assessors travel to the agency to determine if re-accreditation will be awarded. Each assessment includes reviews of
- Written policies
- Actual practices
- Inspection of City equipment and facilities.
Being re-accredited shows our department’s strong commitment to maintaining excellence and professionalism and assures that our policies and procedures are in line with all best practices in law enforcement.
