The McMinnville Police Department has been recognized for reaching an important milestone, the Third Award of Accreditation. With this award, the McMinnville Police Department is one of only three agencies in Tennessee to have this accomplishment.
This accreditation assures that Police employees have a set of policies to help maintain a safe work environment, it reduces the agency's exposure to negative liability, meaning a discount on insurance, and it ensures a high level of professional police services.
Officials with the Tennessee Association of Police Chiefs said the department's buy-in to the 160-plus standards were demonstrated in interviews with staff and demonstrations.
