Public Comment Sought as DFS Inspector General’s Office Seeks Reaccreditation
The Florida Department of Financial Services’
(DFS) Office of the Inspector General invites public comment as the Office
pursues reaccreditation. The Commission for Florida Law Enforcement
Accreditation, the granting entity, will conduct a reassessment on November
9th. The reassessment determines the Office’s compliance on policies and
procedures, management, operations and practices. To become reaccredited is
recognition that the Office maintains standards of excellence that are
confirmed by peer organizations. As part of the
assessment, employees of the Department of Financial Services and the public
are invited to offer comments to the assessment team by writing to:
Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation
P.O. Box 1489
Tallahassee, Florida 32302
After the reassessment team completes their review of the Office's Investigations Section, they will report their findings to the full Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation, which will then decide if the Office of Inspector General will be granted reaccredited status.
The Office of Inspector General must comply with 45 mandatory standards in order to receive reaccredited status. A copy of the accreditation standards is available through the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation's website at www.flaccreditation.org. Participation in reaccreditation process is voluntary and, if granted, will be for a three-year period.
