Citizens are invited to give an assessment of the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office as part of the accreditation process.
The department's on-site assessment is now scheduled for Aug. 25-28.
Officials said, "CALEEA is recognized worldwide as the best of the best in the development of standards (policies and procedures) that improve service, provide necessary documentation to make informed management decisions, increase readiness in critical situations and improve relationships with the community.
"An important component of our goal to provide excellent service is our citizen survey. You can find it on our public website (http://www.hcsheriff.gov). Under the General Info tab, you go to Survey and pull up this simple, 10-question, multiple-choice survey.
"Your opinions and concerns expressed in our citizen survey are very important to us. Your participation in our survey will help us to better understand what is most important to you and your family.
"Sheriff Jim Hammond and his staff ask you to become involved in your community by partnering with us improve the quality of life for all citizens, and to provide excellence in Law Enforcement services with fair and equitable performance."
