City of Reno’s Emergency Communications receives accreditation award for professional excellence


cityofreno-189x300-3760002-7536947Demonstrating a commitment to professional standards in policy and practice, the City of Reno’s Emergency Communications (ECOMM) has met the highly regarded standards of the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA). This is the third time Reno’s ECOMM has been awarded this coveted accreditation which is the gold standard in public safety.

The accreditation represents a commitment to improving the delivery of public safety services by continuing to maintain the high standards that were developed by public safety experts. “We continually strive for professional excellence, using up-to-date, efficient practices so we can provide the best service for our community,” advises Kelley Odom, Assistant Manager of Reno Emergency Communications.

The Reno’s ECOMM has been voluntarily involved in the CALEA accreditation program since 2004, and became the first dispatch or communications agency in Nevada to receive the accreditation in November 2006.

CALEA was created in 1979 through the efforts of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, National Organization of Black law Enforcement Officials, the National Sheriffs’ Association, and the Police Executive Research Forum.

The Reno’s ECOMM provides emergency and non-emergency communications services for the Reno Police Department; Reno Fire Department; University of Nevada Reno Police Department; Truckee Meadows Community College Police Department; and Reno Marshals.
