According to the CALEA chairman, “of 18,000 agencies in the country, less than 1000 are accredited,” which puts the SSPD in a select 6% of police departments across the country. The SSPD was reviewed in operations procedure, safety guidelines, and civil rights infringements, among other criteria. To ensure legitimacy, for a majority of the study the SSPD was unaware that it was under review. Beyond their accreditation, the SSPD deserves honorable mention for it’s willingness to even take part in the process. “Agencies are reluctant to have outsiders review their work and their progress and detail any deficiencies,” the CALEA chairman said. Despite the SSPD’s accreditation, it’s always good to remember that a DUI arrest in Sandy Springs does not entail a conviction. They may be in a select 6% of police departments, but that doesn’t mean they’re perfect. In every DUI case there are multiple opportunities for a strong defense – 36 ways we’ve beaten a DUI charge.
