TLEA Testimonies

"One of the goals of TLEA is to offer a solution to any size police agency to improve their professionalism and to publically demonstrate proficiency in their profession. Our department recognized that we did not address all essential standards in our operating procedures.  We decided to enter into the TLEA program because it is a step-by-step outline that we felt would help us to enhance officer safety, promote public relations, and reduce civil litigation. We are very proud of our accomplishment and our small contribution to heighten law enforcement professionalism throughout the State of Tennessee".  --- Retired Chief Charlie Sewell, McMinnville PD, 1st Charter Accreditation
