SHALIMAR — A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation will arrive May 7 to examine Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office policies, procedures, management, operations and support services, Inspector Robert Norris said.

The sheriff’s office, or OSCO, must comply with approximately 260 standards to maintain accredited status. Many of the standards are critical to life, health and safety.

As part of the on-site assessment, agency members and the public may offer comments to the assessment team. A copy of the standards is available by calling 651-7420.

OSCO initially earned full accreditation from the CFA in 2010.
