This week, we talk to Chief Daniel Mills of the Portage, Michigan Police Department. Along with Retired Assistant Chief Eric Kerns of the Burlington, North Carolina Police Department, Mills has been in town since Sunday, looking closely at our own police in New Canaan. They’re here as assessors with a 40-year-old credentialing authority called the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies or CALEA. In Fairfield County, only the Bethel and Norwalk Police Departments are CALEA-accredited, according to the organization, as are Connecticut State Police. They set very high standards for accreditation, and New Canaan stands out.
