What We Can Do for Your Agency


We provide law enforcement administrators with consultation in a variety of policy matters, including the development of affordable Standard Operation Procedures specific to the customer agency. Through this service, we review and update all mandatory policies set forth by the Maine Criminal Justice Academy specific to the target department, as well as a selection of non-mandatory and workplace compliance policies. Finally, for those agencies that are interested in MLEAP, our policies have incorporated most of the standards, which make accreditation easier to accomplish

Our current policy library consists of over 75 policies and is constantly growing to meet today’s complex and ever-changing law enforcement challenges.

Additionally, over the life of the contract any new or updated policies from the Maine Criminal Justice Academy we take care of, you do not have to worry about. We have a flexible payment schedule for agencies over a four-year period.

The Departments are working with Dirigo Safety to meet MLEAP Accreditation and meet compliance standards for the Maine Criminal Justice Mandatory Policies, Bureau of Labor Policies.
