A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will arrive on April 5, 2016 to examine all aspects of the Key West Police Department’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services, Police Chief Donie Lee announced today. The Key West Police Department has to comply with approximately 260 standards in order to receive accredited status. Many of the standards are critical to life, health and safety issues.

As part of the on-site assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team. A copy of the standards is available through the Department’s Public Information Officer, Alyson Crean at 305-809-1058.

For more information regarding CFA or for persons wishing to offer written comments about the Key West Police Department’s ability to meet the standards of accreditation, please write:

CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida 32302, or email to info@flaccreditation.org.

The Accreditation Program Manager for the Key West Police Department is Officer Jason Castillo. He said the assessment team is composed of law enforcement practitioners from similar agencies. The assessors will review written materials; interview individuals; and visit offices and other places where compliance can be witnessed. The CFA Assessment Team Leader is retired Capt. Robert Brongel. Other team members are Sgt. Rob Pace of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office and Cmd. Chris Willett of the Altamonte Springs Police Department.

Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full Commission, which will then decide if the agency is to receive accredited status. Accreditation is for three years. Verification by the team that the Key West Police Department meets the Commission’s standards is part of a voluntary process to gain or maintain accreditation — a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence.

  1. how will it go if…..the 2 video recordings of Charles eimers ‘death on the beach’ are shown along with the time lines and perjured depositions and other “inconvenient” facts like mr f-bomb’s taser recording. the totally compliant poor sand face encrusted man was killed that day by asphyxiation and didn’t die from a heart problem just because he was taken off the ventilator machine a week later. this is not to say there was any shred of malice since there was none on behalf of key west’s blue team kids but is to say the kid’s play acting being a tv swat dwat can be bad for ones health and the cost of killing has not been met by any standard. great bobble headed cover up though had everyone up and down the line nodding in the affirmative!
    best to all. wjm

  2. WOW, are we the only 2 that that see the KWPD as corrupt ?

    • maybe not the only 2 but the only 2 to reply for now. I think the kwpd has had a religious experience at least I hope it did and lee needs use the 2 videos at any training session he can to instill in any newcomer just what could and did happen when you play tv swat. should never ever happen again is the lesson. but he won’t…so I leave it up to the next chief to use both videos the ‘before’ and the ‘after’ one!
      poor Charles was dead’er then a doornail when they rolled him over with his sand encrusted face on the 2nd video.
      sad the family settled on that scam of only 1M insurance because if they took a closer look into kw finance they would find the municipality had $35+M in reserve funds and a far cry from just $1M insurance,
      but the discovery screeched to a stop and many ‘truths’ were buried that day. oh well life goes on.
      my second try and i’ll save this just in case. 🙂
