Central Bucks Regional Police awarded prestigious state accreditation


The Central Bucks Regional Police Department joins just 15 percent of law enforcement agencies across Pennsylvania in being awarded accreditation from the Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission.
The recognition means the Doylestown-based department met established standards, “assuring the community of the highest quality police services,” according to a statement.
CBRPD, which has 29 sworn officers, including its command staff, has met the following standards:
- Establishes a credible framework for evaluating agency practices and procedures;
- Reduces agency risk and exposure to lawsuits;
- Decreases some liability insurance expenditures;
- Improves law enforcement/community relations;
- Increases employee input, interaction and confidence in the agency;
- Enlarges the outlook and viewpoints of managers, officers and employees;

- Identifies and highlights the capabilities and competence of the agency;
- Furnishes a solid foundation for the agency to build upon for further progress;
- Provides reliable methods to improve essential management procedures;
- Extends agency accountability to the public and elected officials;
- Enhances planning and innovative activities by all agency personnel;
- Develops improved methods for providing services to the community;
- Encourages problem-solving activities within the agency.
The CBRPD covers Doylestown, Chalfont and New Britain boroughs. Late last year it moved from its small offices on West Court Street to its new $4 million, nearly 18,000-square-feet building on North Broad Street in Doylestown Borough.
