The University of South Carolina Upstate Department of Public Safety has been awarded national accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) in the Law Enforcement program.

Members of the University’s police department were recognized with accreditation for excellence in public safety and commitment to community.

“Our agency is honored to have earned this accreditation,” said Klay Peterson, chief of USC Upstate Department of Public Safety. “It represents years of hard work by the officers of our department who serve our community of learners through adherence to the highest standards in professional law enforcement.”

CALEA accreditation/recognition is granted for a four-year period, during which the law enforcement agency must submit annual reports attesting to continued compliance with those standards under which it was initially accredited.

Peterson also was recognized as a runner-up in the 9th annual Campus Safety Director of the Year by “Campus Safety Magazine”.
