A team of assessors from the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Accreditation Group (WILEAG), will arrive on October 6 to examine all aspects of the Milton Police Department’s policy and procedures, management, operation, and support service. The Assessment team will be at the police department from October 6 through October 8.
Verification by the team that the Milton Police Department meets the Board’s state-of-the-art standards is part of a voluntary process to gain accreditation - a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence.
As part of the on-site assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments by telephone. The public may call (608) 868-6910 ext. 233 on October 7 between the hours of 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Members of the community are also welcome to come to the police department to speak with an assessor directly during that time period.
Telephone comments as well as appearances 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 in the front lobby of Milton Police Department, 690 S. Janesville Street, and online. The Police Department contact for further information is Chief Scott Marquardt, (608) 868-6910.
Persons wishing to offer written comments about the Milton Police Department’s ability to meet the standards for accreditation are requested to write to Wisconsin Law Enforcement Accreditation Group, WILEAG at WILEAG at P.O. Box 528, Hartland, WI 53029.
Once the WILEAG Board’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full Board, which will then decide if the agency is to be granted accredited status.
Accreditation status is granted for three years, during which time the agency must submit annual reports attesting continued compliance with those standards under which it was initially accredited.
