General Information

General Information Services

I-PAC Members respond to requests from interested agencies for information on accreditation. This response ranges from telephone conversations to visits and presentations to a department or City, Village or County Board.  Agencies interested in accreditation should e-mail the president.

Accreditation Plan Development and Support

Agencies can request I-PAC to assist the agency in developing an accreditation plan. This can include a site visit, review of facilities and general orders, and interviews with agency personnel.  This service includes training of the agency accreditation personnel, and on-going technical assistance as it is needed.  Agencies can request this assistance by contacting the president.


We offer training at most monthly meetings.  Training can range from informal presentations by experienced accreditation managers to formal classes presented by CALEA staff.

Mock Assessments

We offer, included in the membership fees, a “mock” assessment to agencies going through the accreditation process.  Other requirements apply to this service.  Please contact a vice-president for more details.  For mock assessment requests, use the Contact Us Page.
