The Fairfield Glade Police Department:Newly Accredited, and A Credit To Our Community
On behalf of a grateful Fairfield Glade, the Community Club Board of Directors congratulates our Fairfield Glade Police Department on being named a CALEA accredited law enforcement agency. To appreciate how special that designation is, you need to know that of the six hundred law enforcement agencies in Tennessee, only thirty-five are CALEA accredited.
The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) is an internationally recognized body deriving its credentialing authority from four major law enforcement professional membership organizations:
International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP)
National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE)
National Sheriffs' Association (NSA)
Police Executive Research Forum (PERF)
The Commission was created to develop a set of universal law enforcement standards and an accreditation process by which agencies at the local and state levels can demonstrate voluntarily that they meet the highest professional standards in public safety.
Among the benefits of CALEA accreditation: national recognition of professional law enforcement excellence; well documented policies and procedures that are routinely evaluated for compliance; a focus on community-oriented policing; improved recruiting and retention; and emphasis on coordination with neighboring agencies and other components of the criminal justice system. In addition, accredited agencies typically are subject to fewer legal actions due to the level of training member agencies provide their officers.
Our Fairfield Glade Police Department consists of fourteen sworn officers, three civilian staff, and six volunteer auxiliary officers. Chief Mike Williams and his leadership team have seventy-five years combined law enforcement experience while the department as a whole has over three-hundred fifty years of experience. Numerous members of the department have received extensive training and certifications in: FBI Certified Hostage Negotiation, Motor Vehicle Crash Reconstruction; and, DUI and Radar Instruction. They also include FBI Academy Graduates, Northwestern University of Police and Staff Command Graduates, University of Tennessee Law Enforcement Institute Graduates, DEA Criminal Interdiction Graduates and The Reed Institute of Interview & Interrogation Graduates. Along with Anti-Terrorism and Response To Critical Incident Certifications.
The CALEA accreditation of our Fairfield Glade Police Department confirms what we all know; Fairfield Glade residents are indeed fortunate to have such a well-trained and professional group of dedicated officers protecting and serving our community. We are grateful for their service and for the sacrifices they and their families make to keep all of us safe.
Fairfield Glade Volunteer Fire Department (FGFD)
Since its inception the FGFD has operated as an all-volunteer Fire Department and a separate legal entity organized as a 501c3 organization (Public Charity). FGFD consists of the main station and two substations, each housing their own truck. Currently, there are forty-nine volunteers with seven vehicles.
Cumberland County Emergency Medical Service (CCEMS)
This department is operated by Cumberland County. Their goal is to have an ambulance in Fairfield Glade 24/7 unless on a call outside of Fairfield or transporting a resident or guest to a hospital.
