Posted on 04/15/2024
The Pleasant Prairie Police Department (PPPD) is undergoing assessment for its second re-accreditation with the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Accreditation Group (WILEAG). This process reflects the Police Department's commitment to voluntarily maintaining high standards in law enforcement excellence. Initially accredited on December 11, 2017, the reassessment underscores the PPPD's ongoing dedication to meeting the standards and policies established by WILEAG.

Chief of Police David Smetana emphasized the significance of WILEAG accreditation, highlighting it as the highest standard of professional excellence within Wisconsin law enforcement. He stated, "The re-accreditation process ensures that Pleasant Prairie Police maintains compliance with a set of standards crucial to safeguarding life, health, safety, and citizens' rights."

Scheduled between April 16 and April 18, 2024, the Pleasant Prairie Police Department will undergo an assessment to ensure the agency maintains adherence to WILEAG principles and objectives for best professional practices. A team of trained assessors will conduct a comprehensive review, encompassing examination of written materials, interviews, office visits, and other evaluations to assess compliance with the fifth edition of WILEAG standards.

The Pleasant Prairie Police Department invites agency employees and the public to share their comments with the WILEAG assessors during the assessment process. Those interested in providing written feedback on the PPPD's compliance with accreditation standards should send comments to WILEAG at 7525 W. Greenfield Avenue, West Allis, WI 53214, or email [email protected]. Comments can also be provided to WILEAG by calling 262-694-7353 on April 17, 2024, between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. 

The WILEAG Assessment Team will consider all input received. Following the in-person review, the assessors will present their report and findings to the WILEAG Board to decide whether the Pleasant Prairie Police Department will receive re-accreditation.
