The California Police Accreditation Coalition (CALPAC) recognizes and supports the concept of accreditation for law enforcement agencies as a means to enhance the quality of law enforcement, communications, training academy, and campus security services delivered within the State of California, and the communities of member agencies. To this end, CALPAC provides an informational network for member agencies seeking or maintaining any program established by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc (CALEA).

CALPAC History

The California Police Accreditation Coalition (CALPAC) was organized in 2001 to provide information and mutual assistance for California agencies participating in accreditation and reaccreditation.  CALPAC was officially incorporated with the State of California as a non-profit corporation on June 2012. Since its inception, CALPAC has met quarterly to serve as an informational network for member agencies and has facilitated training and the sharing of resources. The CALPAC Executive Board consists of a President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer, each serving a two-year term.  As the governing body of the organization, the Executive Board remains actively informed of CALEA updates, changes, and serves at the request of the organization.
