The Commission of Florida Law Enforcement awards accreditation status to police departments that reach a level of professional standards dictated by compliance with over 300 policies that govern each aspect of the agency's operations. These policies include structure, organization, training, hiring of personnel, deployment, responsiveness, and routine calls for service. With the realization accreditation is a demanding and full-time process, policies and procedures are constantly being updated and revised. The Commission requires that all policies are accompanied by three years of documentation which proves agency compliance. This level of accomplishment has been achieved by only 120 of the 400 law enforcement agencies in the State. Indian River Shores Public Safety was first awarded accreditation status in February 2009 and has maintained its accreditation status through the following cycles:

  • Accredited on February 25, 2009
  • Reaccredited on February 23, 2012
  • Reaccredited on February 25, 2015
  • Reaccredited on February 21, 2018
  • Reaccredited February 18, 2021
