Administration Division

Office of Professional Standards

The Office of Professional Standards is an organizational component of the Round Lake Police Department managed by the Director of Police Administration. The Director of Police Administration is responsible for maintaining a system that addresses and investigates complaints against members of the Round Lake Police Department. The system is designed to address internal and external complaints and to ensure strict compliance with policies and guidelines. Final disposition of complaints could result in counseling, corrective training, disciplinary action or vindication.

Records Section

The Records Section is the central depository for all criminal and non-criminal police reports, which include incident reports, arrest reports, motor vehicle crash reports, traffic citations and parking tickets. The Records Section is responsible for data entry, Uniform Crime Reporting and processing requests for copies of police reports. Additionally, Records Clerks serve as the Department receptionists by answering telephones and greeting visitors.

The Records Section is staffed by one Records Supervisor and one full-time Records Clerk.


Law Enforcement Accreditation

The Round Lake Police Department is seeking professional accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA). CALEA is a private entity that was formed by four major law enforcement organizations: the International Association of Chiefs of Police, National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives, National Sheriff's Association and the Police Executive Research Forum. The purpose of CALEA is to develop law enforcement standards and to administer the accreditation process.

The 446 law enforcement standards address nine major subjects:
  1. Role, responsibilities and relationships with other agencies
  2. Organization, management and administration
  3. Personnel structure
  4. Personnel process
  5. Operations
  6. Operational support
  7. Traffic operations
  8. Prisoner and court-related activities
  9. Auxiliary and technical services
The goal of the law enforcement standards is to:
  • Strengthen crime prevention and control capabilities
  • Formalize essential management procedures
  • Establish fair and nondiscriminatory personnel practices
  • Improve service-delivery
  • Solidify interagency cooperation and coordination
  • Boost citizen and staff confidence in the agency
And finally, the benefits of CALEA Law Enforcement Accreditation include:
  • Greater accountability within the agency
  • Controlled liability insurance costs
  • Stronger defense against civil lawsuits
  • Staunch support from government officials
  • Increased community advocacy
