PowerDMS and the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police (GACP) have joined forces to reach a standardized goal of simplifying certification processes. The partnership provides a holistic structure for Georgia’s law enforcement agencies to exceed certification standards while maintaining focus on safeguarding their community.
“The Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police (GACP) is very pleased with the accord we have reached with the well-respected PowerDMS,” said D. Mike Edwards, Director of State Certification of GACP. “GACP believes this is another step forward in our efforts to further professionalize law enforcement in the State of Georgia.”
Beginning immediately, GACP’s 100 state-certified agencies in Georgia who are either seeking accreditation for the first time or reaccreditation by The State of Georgia Law Enforcement Certification Program or a respective accrediting body (such as the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies [CALEA]) will be implementing Standards, part of PowerDMS. GACP will then begin dispersing standards manuals exclusively within the Standards application, providing the capabilities to manage standards and build files electronically, track versioning, review the entire process remotely, and much more.
PowerDMS is an all-inclusive software set equipped to tackle compliance-related tasks. From policy-and-procedure management to e-training, competency testing, and complete accreditation management, the application truly redefines the traditional paper-laden certification process.
“We’ve enjoyed working with the GACP throughout the past 10 years, and we’re elated they’ve chosen to embrace advanced technology to improve the certification process now and in the future,” said Joshua Brown, founder and CEO of PowerDMS. “We’re honored that the GACP selected PowerDMS as their vehicle to supply an enhanced certification experience for their members.”

Whether you’re looking for a way to handle standards compliance, policy dissemination and archiving, document signatures, employee training, knowledge assessments, or feedback reception and open, professional communication, PowerDMS Suite exists to handle each entity separately or as a comprehensive toolbox; ultimately redefining document management.
