The Richmond County School Safety and Security Department received a three-year state certification by the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police, a recognition similar to accreditation that verifies a higher standard of professionalism for law enforcement agencies.

Capt. Theodore Brown, Chief Alfonzo Williams and former chief Patrick Clayton were recognized Tuesday by the Richmond County Board of Education for their efforts.

The department is now one of about 100 law enforcement agencies with the certification out of the 700 in Georgia, according to the association’s district 7 representative Gary Owens.

The certification outlines about 129 standards to follow on issues ranging from training and dress code to use of force.

A three year certification!

A three year certification! One of 100 out of 700 on issues ranging from training and dress code to use of force (I'm curious as to how the various issues are weighted).
