Accreditation; A Flagship Agency and A Meritorious Agency

Sheriff David Gee is proud to announce that the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office has earned the Triple Crown of accreditation by three separate accrediting authorities. This distinct honor is rare among law enforcement agencies across the nation, and identifies HSCO as one of the outstanding sheriff's offices in our country based on standards, guidelines, training and other quantifiable assessments.

The Triple Crown designation was awarded by:

Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies
National Commission on Correctional Health Care
American Correctional Association's Commission
on Accreditation for Corrections

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is a national leader when it comes to accreditation, a recognized standards for law enforcement agencies around the country. In 1986 the Sheriff's Office was the first sheriff's agency in Florida (and third in the nation) to be accredited by the Commission on Accreditation  for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). In 1991, HCSO was the nation's first agency to earn ''unconditional'' re-accreditation. HCSO has been named a "flagship'' agency among law enforcement agencies in the United States.

Accreditation standards form the basis for providing the Sheriff and his staff a proven management system of written directives, sound tracking guidelines, clearly defined lines of authority, and routine reports that support decision making and resource allocation.  Adherence to the standards established by CALEA and CFA necessitates periodic, in-depth, review of all department operations and components.  This continuing process allows the agency to change and evolve along with the needs of our community.  The citizens of Hillsborough County are assured of a continued level of professionalism through the accreditation process.

Congratulations to the men and women of the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office!


Kudos to our HCSO Staff and to Sheriff David Gee for once again, for the seventh time since 1986 of obtaining the Certificate of Accreditation for the Agency.
