About the 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 visit the agency to verify compliance.

One of the first steps in the process is the appointment of the Accreditation Manager (AM). The new Accreditation Manager will need training in some new skills important to the agency's and the AM's success. The training will familiarize the new AM in the following areas:

  • History of Law Enforcement accreditation; 
  • Benefits and goals of accreditation; 
  • An overview of the Kansas Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (KLEAP); 
  • An introduction into the KLEAP Program Standards; 
  • Proofs of compliance;
  • PDF file construction; 
  • File sharing; 
  • Policy and procedure development; 
  • Conducting a gap analysis; 
  • Mock assessment and on-site assessment; 
  • The Kansas Accreditation Coalition (KSAC); and
  • Valuable resources availability for agencies participating in the program.

The training will provide a forum for asking questions, as well as meeting others being appointed to the AM position, creating a peer-to-peer network. Newly appointed AM's are encouraged to attend this beneficial training as they begin the accreditation process. We urge anyone that will be involved at any level in the process to attend the training.

There is no cost for the training, but participants are responsible for expenses related to their travel, meals, and lodging. The Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center cafeteria is available to attendees for $6.00 [Hutchinson location only]. Attendees must indicate their desire to utilize the cafeteria on the registration form. Please dress in layers as the temperature in the room varies.
