The Redding Police Department has received state Accreditation from the Connecticut Police Officer Standards and Training Council. The process was described by Chief Douglas Fuchs in November to the Board of Selectmen saying the Department's policies and procedures are reviewed to assure they meet current operation standards.
There is no cost for the town associated with the review or accreditation.
Redding is now the 16th police department in Connecticut with this accreditation. Among the others are Monroe and Ridgefield.
