Police certification increases accountability

Cape Code Times

The Massachusetts Coalition of Police (MassCOP) is working with Gov. Charlie Baker, the Legislature and the 157 communities that our 4,300 members serve and protect everyday to bring about constructive reform to policing and law enforcement across the state.

As the state moves toward a reform bill, we have repeatedly met with the administration and legislators, the NAACP, ACLU and the Black and Latino Legislative Caucus.

We agree with the governor and lawmakers on the need for a comprehensive process for certifying all police officers in Massachusetts. But we also believe that every Massachusetts police department should be held to the highest standards and best practices in law enforcement — and that is best accomplished through the accreditation process.
