On September 14, 2023, the East Lyme Police Department was awarded Tier 3 accreditation by the CT POST Council.
To accomplish this large task, administrative staff led by Accreditation Manager Lieutenant Dana Jezierski, worked closely with the Daigle Law Group, Department staff and the Police Union.
The State Accreditation program is designed to ensure that Connecticut law enforcement agencies operate in the most efficient manner and with uniformity to reduce exposure to civil liability, and to provide excellent management and service delivery.
The Connecticut Law Enforcement Accreditation Program consists of three successive tiers. The East Lyme Police Department worked incredibly hard to enact the 322 standards required to meet Tier 1, 2 and 3 accreditation, The ELPD was the first Southeastern Connecticut Police Department to reach Tier 3 status.
