The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office has been awarded Excelsior Recognition through the Florida Corrections Accreditation Commission. This accomplishment, presented by the Commission, marks the 6th consecutive recognition for the agency. The award was presented this week to Sheriff Bill Prummell, Bureau of Detention Captain Melissa Turney and members of the Professional Compliance team.
An accreditation program has long been recognized as a means of maintaining the highest standards of professionalism. Accreditation is the certification by an independent reviewing authority that an entity has met specific requirements and prescribed standards.
The Excelsior Recognition is awarded to Florida criminal justice agencies which have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to the Florida accreditation process.
“I am proud of the Bureau of Detention for achieving this milestone recognition,” stated Sheriff Bill Prummell. “Accreditation represents our promise to our community that they are receiving the highest quality of public safety services possible.”
