(Richmond, IN)--The Wayne County Sheriff’s Department has been re-accredited by a national commission that ensures agencies meet the highest standards of law enforcement. It’s a big deal because only a handful of departments nationally receive the accreditation. Assessors from CALEA were in Wayne County in March to do an on-site assessment and then forward findings to commissioners. That commission then unanimously approved the re-accreditation. Sheriff Jeff Cappa and Deputy Rick Barth went to Rhode Island last week to finalize their status.
