Statistical Summaries of Disciplinary Investigations
Accreditation Performance Feedback
The Littleton Police Department (LPD) is proud to be accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). This accreditation demonstrates the LPD’s commitment to professional excellence in policy and practice. The reaccreditation process takes place every four years and requires an extensive review including a week-long, audit by outside assessors. LPD received its 6th accreditation in spring of 2022.
The CALEA commission provides an opportunity for individuals to provide feedback, comments, commendations, and other information regarding LPD’s quality of service or other information relevant to the accreditation process through an Accreditation Performance Link.
As a CALEA accredited law enforcement agency, all Littleton Service employees are required to complete anti-bias training each year. This training includes legal aspects and an examination of the patterns, practices, and protocols that result in bias-based policing/profiling. LPD will investigate citizen complaints of bias-based policing/profiling in the same manner by which other complaints regarding an officer's conduct are investigated. LPD personnel determined to be in violation of this policy will be subject to disciplinary actions. View 608-Bias-Based Policy
Body Worn Cameras
Body-worn cameras are valuable tools that provide an added layer of accountability for both law enforcement and the people they serve. In the summer of 2022 LPD began the implementation of body-worn cameras for all sworn personnel. View 1102-BWC Policy.
