KANNAPOLIS ó The public is invited to comment during the Kannapolis Police Departmentís assessment later this month by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies.
A team of assessors will be in Kannapolis on Nov. 28 to examine all aspects of the Kannapolis Police Department policy and procedures, management, operations and support services.

Anyone who canít speak at the session but would still like to provide comments to the assessment team may do so by calling 704-920-4060 between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Nov. 29.
Telephone comments as well as appearances at the public information session are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agencyís ability to comply with the commissionís standards.

To offer written comments about the Police Departmentís ability to meet the standards for accreditation, write to the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, 13575 Heathcote Blvd. Suite 320, Gainesville, VA 20155.
