As part of the assessment, a public hearing for accreditation will begin at 3:30 p.m. Monday, March 26, in the Ford Room of the Jerry Sue Thornton Center, 2500 E. 22nd St. in Cleveland. Anyone from the College or community is invited to attend and comment.

Accreditation from the commission recognizes professional excellence in the field of public safety. Tri-C’s Campus Police and Security Services received its first CALEA accreditation in 2012 and gained reaccreditation in 2015.
Only 78 college law enforcement agencies in the nation have earned CALEA accreditation. Tri-C is the lone community college with the designation.
