ECU Police Accreditation Underway

Do you think the ECU Police department is doing a good job? That's what a team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies was trying to find out Monday in Greenville.

There was a public information session where community members could offer their comments about the ECU Police department. They also accepted phone calls in the morning for those who could not be at the meeting.

The assessment is to help make sure that all standards are being met by the department. Once that's complete then the department will be accredited.

Accreditation is for three years, during which annual reports must be submitted that the department is continuing to keep up with standards.

    To ECU Staff: It is "their cars" not "there cars". Your lack of education while beinging employed at ECU shows just how much your comment means. Wake up and soak in some of the educational opportunities that are available for you. I hope you are not a professor.

    Yes, this is a waste of money... paying for people who know nothing about the ECUPD to make rules for them to follow. And "K"- You are right- If the money is paid, they will get it.

    The ECU Police Department does an outstanding job. It takes real guts to work as a campus police officer these days. For years, there may be nothing more than an alcohol-related incident and then, in a split second, we could have a massacre such as the one that occurred at Virginia Tech. These are tough times and law enforcement officers are subjected to more danger than ever. However, contrary to popular belief, ECU Police Officers are prepared for the worst. Please give them credit where credit is due....

    As long as the ECU Police Department pays the money for accrediation, they will get it. CALEA is a joke.

    So that's why I didnt' see ECU police sitting around campus in there cars talking to each other, not doing anything! A HUGE waste of money.

    I didn't know they had Accreditation for Security Guards. That's about the extent of what they do. Not knocking the officers, but the administration will not let them do real police work.

    I thought ECU was hurting for money!?... I thought they were cutting classes and cutting back on things?? But ECU has enough money to WASTE on CALEA? It does nothing be take away money... it compounds an already stressful workload with meaningless paperwork! Is the head of ECU "police" so incompetent that they can't be trusted to make their own policy? Call the Boy Scouts of America to come in and help you out... will be much cheaper, plus they will be more welcome than a club out of Cali. Think people. Think.

    The ECU police and the ECU football team have a lot in common. NONE of it is good however.
