The Hillsboro Beach Police Department is proud to announce that assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will arrive at the Hillsboro Beach Police Department on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, according to Chief Jay Szesnat. This assessment will be a three-day examination of all aspects of the department's policies, procedures, management, operations, and support services.

The assessment team is comprised of law enforcement practitioners from agencies throughout the State of Florida. The assessors will review written materials, practices, and interview individuals so that compliance can be witnessed. 

As part of the on-site assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team. The comments must be in writing and must address the department's ability to comply with CFA standards. Please write to: CFA, P.O.

Once the CFA Assessors complete their review of our agency, a full report will be filed with the Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission, who will then decide if the agency is awarded Accreditation status for the next three years. If so awarded, the Hillsboro Beach Police Department will have retained a highly prized, statewide recognition, of law enforcement professional excellence Chief Szesnat said.
