The Kansas Law Enforcement Accreditation Program is a voluntary process.
The Kansas Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (KLEAP) is accepting Kansas Law Enforcement Agencies into our State Accreditation Program!
To apply for the Kansas Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (KLEAP):
STEP 1: Download and complete the Agency Participation Agreement.
STEP 2: View the Accreditation Manager Training classes list on the Website that are being offered. Classes are scheduled to meet Participating Agency needs.
STEP 3: Complete a Training Registration Form for each person from your agency planning to attend Accreditation Manager training. The training is FREE to our Participating Agencies and there is no limit on the number of people from your agency that may attend.
STEP 4: Upon receipt of your completed Agency Participation Agreement, an invoice will be emailed to your agency for payment of your annual accreditation fee. Annual fees are collected to pay our program Assessors.
While Kansas Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (KLEAP) is a standalone accrediting body, facilitated by the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center (KLETC), CALEA agencies within the State of Kansas are welcome to participate in the KLEAP and will be identified as a DUAL accredited agency.
CALEA agencies must submit a signed Agency Participation Agreement. Upon receipt of the signed Agency Participation Agreement and proof of the agency's current accreditation status with CALEA the KLEAP Manager will invoice the agency for their $250 annual fee. The Kansas Accreditation Council (KAC) will vote, at the next regular meeting, to award the agency a DUAL Accreditation KLEAP Certificate.
The Chief Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) is required to ensure that an Annual Report of Compliance is filed with the KLEAP Manager each year to maintain their agency's current dual accredited status. The Annual Report of Compliance, available on the KLEAP Website, should be completed annually on the anniversary date of the agency's original accreditation status with CALEA. See the Annual Report of Compliance Report - Section B for additional reporting directions.
