Pleasant Prairie Police Undertake WILEAG Re-Accreditation Assessment

PLEASANT PRAIRIE, WI – April 12, 2021 — The Pleasant Prairie Police Department is currently taking on an assessment for its first re-accreditation with the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Accreditation Group (WILEAG). The accreditation process is a voluntary commitment to law enforcement excellence. Pleasant Prairie Police initially became accredited through WILEAG on December 11, 2017.

"WILEAG accreditation is the gold standard of professional excellence in Wisconsin law enforcement," said David Smetana, Chief of Police. "The re-accreditation process will ensure Pleasant Prairie Police maintain compliance with a body of standards that are essential to protecting life, health, safety, and citizens' rights."

Between April 13 and April 15, 2021, the Pleasant Prairie Police Department will undergo an assessment to ensure the agency maintains WILEAG principles and objectives for best professional practices. A trained assessment team will conduct a thorough review of the department to ensure it complies with the fifth edition of WILEAG standards. WILEAG assessors will review written material, interview individuals, visit offices, and evaluate other areas to observe compliance.

The Pleasant Prairie Police Department invites agency employees and the public to contribute comments by calling 262-694-7353 on April 14, 2021, between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. The WILEAG Assessment Team that is conducting the Pleasant Prairie Police assessment will be taking all comments. Once the WILEAG assessors complete the agency's in-person review, they will share their report and findings with the entire WILEAG Board to determine if the Pleasant Prairie Police Department will receive re-accreditation.
