Byrne JAG funds support the startup of the Delaware Police Accreditation Commission (DPAC). Because the National Police Accreditation, Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) process has become so costly and time consuming for smaller departments, the state of Delaware has formed a new statewide commission to certify agencies as accredited once they have met the required standards. Funding also supports an accreditation manager position to assist smaller agencies with the process, allowing them to avoid assigning agency personnel to the task and more effectively allocate their resources.
