Moline Police Dept Seeks Accreditation from ILEAP Council, Public Invited to Provide Input


The Moline Police Department is working towards Illinois Law Enforcement Accreditation (ILEAP). The public is invited to share input on the assessment of the Moline Police Department on January 9, 2023, from 4 to 5 PM.

Trained assessors from the Illinois Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (ILEAP) will be conducting an On-Site Assessment of the Moline Police Department on January 9th and 10th. During this time, trained assessors from peer agencies across the state will arrive to conduct inspections, file review and audits of the police department. These representatives will examine the department to ensure the Moline Police Department is worthy of accreditation through the Illinois Law Enforcement Accreditation Council.  The On-Site Assessment will evaluate policy and procedure against established criteria in 69 professional standards. The standards cover areas of Administration, Operations, Personnel and Training.

Chief Darren Gault, and the accreditation team, invite the public to voice their opinions, experiences and other information with the accreditation team. On January 10th, from 9:30 to 10:30 AM, citizens may call in to 309-524-2113 to speak privately with the representatives from ILEAP. The assessment team wants to hear your experiences with the Moline Police Department and whether you feel your police department should be accredited.  When you call, tell the operator that you would like to speak with the ILEAP team. You will be connected to the assessment team who will be working in a private area. Comments are limited to five minutes, but feel confident that your opinions will be heard by the on-site team and forwarded to the Chief.

Once the on-site visit is completed, the assessment team confers, develops an on-site report, and forwards the report to the ILEAP Council. The ILEAP Council discusses the Accreditation Team’s findings and votes to determine if the Moline Police Department has met the professional standards that form the esteemed title of accreditation.

If you can’t call in, you may send your comments to [email protected] and your emails will be shared with the assessment team.
