ALEAP (AZ) Accreditation Manual

Available to Arizona LE agencies


In July of 2018, the Arizona Chiefs of Police (AACOP) launched the Arizona Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (ALEAP) to provide agencies an affordable, state-centered alternative to the national accreditation process.

The ALEAP standards have been designed to capture both nationally recognized and state-specific best practices of running a professional law enforcement agency.

Accreditation helps justify how your department operates and gives your community confidence you are employing the best personnel and practices. Additionally, accreditation allows for self-reflection by helping see areas in which your agency can improve and foster a culture of accountability. And most importantly, accreditation helps reduce liability by ensuring you have the proper documentation to cover your agency in the event of a negligent act.
