Welcome to the Oregon Accreditation Alliance Website


The Oregon Accreditation Alliance exists to improve the quality of law enforcement and 911 agencies in the State of Oregon, State of Alaska, and ultimately the quality of services provided to the citizens of both states. The Oregon Accreditation Alliance proudly provides law enforcement and communications/911 accreditation to qualified law enforcement and 911 agencies in Oregon and Alaska.

The Oregon Accreditation Alliance was formed in April 2001. It was created under the direction and authority of the Oregon Association Chiefs of Police, the Oregon State Sheriff's Association, and the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials. The Alliance mutually supports and endorses the continued improvement of law enforcement and emergency communications services by establishing professional standards of accountability, management, and operations.

The Oregon Accreditation Alliance is governed by the Oregon Accreditation Alliance Board. The Board is composed of representatives from the Oregon Association Chiefs of Police, the Oregon State Sheriff's Association, and the Oregon Chapter of the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials. The purpose of the Board is to review all agencies being presented for state accreditation to ensure that compliance with all applicable standards has been met. If all requirements have been met, the Board nominates the candidate agency to the respective parent organization for the award of state accreditation.

The Oregon Accreditation Alliance Board meets three to four times each year, generally in the months of January, April, June and September.
