Warren County Sheriff's Office Receives KACP Accreditation

Warren county sheriff badgeBOWLING GREEN, Ky. (5/8/14) — Sheriff Jerry M. "Peanuts" Gaines and his staff have been working since September 2013 preparing for application to the Kentucky Association of Chiefs of Police for accreditation.

As of Saturday, May 3, 2014, Warren County Sheriff's Office has received the accreditation. WCSO is the fifth Sheriff's Office out of the 120 counties in the Commonwealth of Kentucky to become accredited by K.A.C.P.

Sheriff Gaines will hold an official media release at 8 a.m. Friday, May 16, 2014 during the normally scheduled Warren Fiscal Court. All media representatives are invited to attend.

Warren County Sheriff's Office with the support of Warren County Judge Executive Mike Buchanon and the Warren Fiscal Court has adopted "best practice" policies and procedures, implemented extra measures of security, and made enhancements in evidence processing and law enforcement equipment necessary to meet the standards of the accreditation process.

One of the most important benefits to being K.A.C.P. accredited is providing confidence to the community that their Sheriff's Office is performing to the best of its ability.

Other benefits include, but are not limited to:

  • A stronger defense against lawsuits and citizen complaints by adhering to legitimate recognized standards.
  • Accreditation provides a norm for an agency to judge its performance.
  • The process provides a basis to correct any deficiencies in the agency’s operations before they become public problems.
  • Being accredited has the potential for lowering insurance rates.
  • Accreditation minimizes an agency’s exposure to liability, reducing vicarious liability lawsuits.
  • Accreditation provides an opportunity to have an independent evaluation of agency operation.
  • The accreditation process requires that agencies commit their policies and procedures to writing which promotes accountability among agency personnel and the evenhanded application of policies.
  • Accreditation recognizes agencies for meeting recognized standards of excellence.
Warren County Sheriff's Office appreciates the support of the Warren Fiscal Court and all citizens of Warren County.
