ACCREDITATION
 

Each of the four divisions which operate within the Office of the Sheriff in Tioga County actively participates in, and has been awarded, Accreditation.

Accreditation is a process in which an agency must validate their operating policies and procedures conform to, or exceed, standards established by a group of independent professionals within the Public Safety profession.  These standards represent, and are widely accepted as Best Practices within the Public Safety field, and are meant to promote effective operations which are efficient, transparent, and promote public confidence.

During the validation process, each division is inspected and evaluated by a team of independent professionals to verify that all applicable standards have been implemented.  Collectively, more than 523 standards were reviewed and declared to have met or exceed the respective standards. 

Accreditation is a significant accomplishment.  It demonstrates an agency's commitment to establishing and maintaining high standards which meet or exceed expectations of quality in the Public Safety field.
