Professional Standards / Accreditation Manager 

The purpose of the Office of Proffesional Standards is to ensure that the integrity of the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office is maintained through an internal system where objectivity, fairness, and justice are assured through intensive and impartial investigation, inspection, and review. 

After contracting with CALEA, in June 1995, to seek accreditation, the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office began a period of self-assessment wherein all policies and procedures, equipment, management practices, etc., are reviewed to determine whether they meet the accepted established standard. The self-assessment period normally takes approximately three years.

The Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office underwent an on-site assessment conducted by a team of assessors from CALEA. in January 1998. After a thorough examination of Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office policies, procedures, facilities, and equipment, the assessment team declared the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office to be in compliance with all applicable standards and recommended the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office for accredited status. In March 1998, the Command Staff appeared before the Accreditation Commission in Vancouver, Canada,where the Spartanburg County Sheriff''s Office officially received its accreditation and joined an elite group of accredited agencies. The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office has undergone re-accreditation in March 2001, July 2004, April 2007, and December 2009 to maintain its accredited status.

Now that accredited status has been achieved, it is our responsibility to maintain compliance with the standards and to seek re-accreditation every three years. Accreditation therefore, is a never-ending process, which ensures that we, as a law enforcement agency, remain on the cutting edge regarding our procedures, management, equipment and overall operation.

 Throughout the year complaints are made on officers, once the complaint is made an internal investigation is opened into these complaints. Attached are the results of those complaints. Please click here for the Internal Affairs Year End Reports.
