Accreditation Manager Training

The Kansas Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (KLEAP) follows a progressive and time-proven way of assisting Kansas Law Enforcement agencies to improve their overall performance. Agencies participating in the accreditation program will conduct a self-assessment utilizing a Gap Analysis approach to determine how existing operations, policies, and procedures can be adapted to meet the 167 KLEAP Program Standards. The agency will develop electronic accreditation files to document their compliance. When the process is completed, a team of trained assessors will conduct a remote file review and visit the agency to verify compliance.

Training Objectives Include:

  • Policy Development and Management
  • An Introduction to KLEAP Standards
  • Successful Accreditation Management
  • Mock Assessment
  • On-Site Assessment
  • Mastering KLEAP Resources

This training will provide a forum for asking questions and create a peer-to-peer network. Newly appointed Accreditation Managers are encouraged to attend this beneficial training as they begin the accreditation process. This class is specifically geared toward training Accreditation Managers or anyone working on the Accreditation Team.
