Somerset Borough Police Retain Accredited Status
You will see this seal affixed to the facilities and vehicles of the Somerset Borough Police Department.
In case you ever wondered what those round decals on our cruisers and station doors are all about, they represent that the Somerset Borough Police is an accredited law enforcement agency, verifiably engaging in law enforcement best practices as certified by the Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission (PLEAC). SPD was initially accredited in March 2010 and was reaccredited in 2013. Of the 1,200+ municipal police agencies in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, there are only 107 that are accredited and SPD remains in those ranks. Our accreditation is valid for the next three years when we will again be assessed by PLEAC.
Congratulations to the men and women of the Somerset Borough Police and thank you to the Borough Mayor, Council and Administration for allowing us to pursue and maintain this goal. A special pat on the back to Sgt. Steve Borosky, our Accreditation Manager.
