The Wyandotte Police Department will serve with respect and professionalism. As an Accredited Agency we will set the standard of excellence in law enforcement and continue to maintain the department’s reputation for providing effective, courteous service, and protection for the community.
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.
