The Hamden Police Department is proud to announce that we have met the minimum standards and practices developed by the Connecticut Police Officer Standards and Training Council, known as CLESP (Compliance to Law Enforcement Standards and Practices Program).
CLESP requires Connecticut Police Departments to adhere to a minimum of 16 standards. The department must submit evidence of compliance to the State’s CLESP Accreditation Manager.
To gain compliance, the Hamden Police Department revised and updated policies concerning Biased Based Policing, Motor Vehicle Pursuits, Use of Force and many others.
Sergeant Raymond Quinn of the Hamden Police Department Training Division was instrumental in this extensive, successful endeavor.
I have attached the CLESP (minimum standards) to this email.
