The University of Kentucky Police was first awarded state accreditation by the Kentucky Association of Chiefs of Police in January 1996 and received its last reaccreditation in 2011.
As a citizen, this is good news! The accreditation program gives the University of Kentucky Police the tools necessary to ensure that all policies and procedures conform to the most up-to-date professional law enforcement standards. State accreditation through the Kentucky Association of Chiefs of Police (KACP) is not mandatory, but it does reflect the University of Kentucky Police Department's willingness to demonstrate professional excellence to the Lexington community. The overall goal of the accreditation program is to promote professionalism and improve the delivery of law enforcement services. KACP requires that each agency be reaccredited every 5 years.
