Accreditation

The Cocoa Police Department is an accredited law enforcement agency through the Florida Commission for Law Enforcement Accreditation since 2006. The accreditation renewal process occurs every three years with a rigorous review. The Cocoa Police Department has successfully maintained this accredited status through each of these reviews (four to date). The next renewal process will be in 2021.

An accreditation program has long been recognized as a means of maintaining the highest standards of professionalism. Accreditation is the certification by an independent reviewing authority that an entity has met specific requirements and prescribed standards.
