CALEA (Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement)
The Maryland Transportation Authority Police participates in the CALEA (Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement) Accreditation process. The MDTA Police is one of less than thirty law enforcement agencies in the United States to earn the Tri-Arc Award, granted to agencies that have concurrent CALEA accreditation for their law enforcement, public safety communications and public safety training agencies. As a part of this process, we provide an opportunity for public feedback via the CALEA portal which can be accessed here:
The purpose of this public portal is to receive comments regarding our compliance with CALEA standards, engagement in the service community, delivery of public safety services and overall candidacy for accredited status. These comments can be in the form of commendations or concerns. The overall intent of the accreditation process is to provide the MDTA Police with information to support continuous improvement, as well as foster the pursuit of professional excellence.
