The Naples Police Department is proud to claim initial accreditation by the Commission for Law Enforcement Accreditation, Inc. (CFA).

Accreditation has long been recognized as a means of maintaining the highest standards of professionalism.
A top priority is making sure the department has met specific professional standards deemed appropriate through The Commission for Florida Accreditation (CFA).

By adopting accreditation standards, the Department assures that its services continue to be excellent. Accreditation is a coveted award that symbolizes professionalism, excellence, and competence.
