Newaygo PD earns accreditation

Michigan Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission
Newaygo, MI – The City of Newaygo Police Department (NPD) along with our staff are excited to announce its completion of the Michigan Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission (MLEAC) accreditation process.
Accreditation is a progressive and time-proven way of helping law enforcement agencies calculate and improve their overall performances. The foundation of accreditation lies in the voluntary adoption of standards containing a clear statement of professional objectives. Participating agencies conduct a thorough self-analysis to determine which of their existing operations already meet some of the standards and/or how the procedures can be adapted to meet the standards and professional objectives. When the procedures are in place, a team of trained Commission assessors verified that applicable standards had been successfully implemented and the agency is in compliance. Accreditation status represents a significant professional achievement. Accreditation acknowledges the implementation of written directives, policies, and procedures that are conceptually sound and operationally effective.
The Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police (MACP) and the Michigan Sheriffs’ Association (MSA) have pursued this concept and development the development of the MLEAC. The attitudes, training and actions of personnel of Michigan’s law enforcement agencies best reflect compliance with the 108 standards contained in this program. Newaygo Police Department was the thirty-seventh accredited agency, state-wide.
On October 11, 2021, the Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police President Chief Ronald Wiles of Grand Blanc Township, MACP Executive Director Robert Stevenson, and the Director of Professional Development/Accreditation Neal Rossow presented the City of Newaygo the certificate of accreditation at the City council meeting. The community should take pride in knowing they have an accredited police department.
“The City of Newaygo Police Department continually strives to become one of the most professional departments in West Michigan. MLEAC Accreditation is a big step in the right direction. With this certificate of accreditation makes NPD the first department in our area to attain accreditation. I hope that our constant pursuit of excellence allows us to serve our great citizens with the utmost professionalism for years to come” – Chief Georgia Andres.

On the Banks of the Muskegon River

City of Newaygo
Nature has influenced Newaygo since before 100 B.C. when Indian tribes like the Hopewell and Ottawa flourished here, hunting, fishing, and trapping the landscape.

There are many legends and stories about the name chosen for Newaygo. It is believed it was derived from an Indian brave, Nah-way-gon, who had a reputation for bravery and strength, and was known for his courage on the battlefield.

We're glad you are interested in our community. Please contact City Hall with any questions. We are happy to help.
