Wausau Police Department

WAUSAU — The Wausau Police Department is accepting public input as it undergoes an onsite assessment as a component of its designation as an accredited law enforcement agency.

The assessment is a review of the department’s compliance with established standards in four primary areas: policy and procedures, operations, administration and support services.

Both the “accredited agency” designation and the assessment are administered by the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Accreditation Group.

WILEAG assessors will be at the Wausau Police Department from Feb. 25 to Feb. 27. The assessment team is composed of law enforcement professionals from other Wisconsin agencies, and as a part of the assessment process, members of the public and employees of the Wausau Police Department are invited to offer comments by calling the assigned WILEAG assessment team at 715-261-7817 on Feb. 26 between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Comments are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with WILEAG’s standards. A copy of the standards is available at the Wausau Police Department and on the department’s Facebook page.

Additionally, anyone wishing to submit written comments about the Wausau Police Department’s ability to comply with the standards for accreditation can send them to WILEAG at: WILEAG, PO BOX 528, Hartland, WI 53029 or wileag@yahoo.com.

For questions related to the accreditation process, contact Lt. Cord Buckner at cord.buckner@ci.wausau.wi.us.
