The City of Morrison and its Police Department is pleased to announce that Chief Brian Melton has been honored by the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police (ILACP) by being designated as a Certified Police Chief through the Association’s Police Chief Certification Program. This designation signifies that Chief Melton has met the highest standards of competency and conduct for his profession.
Illinois is the only state in the U.S. that currently offers a Police Chief Certification Program based on an extensive, legally validated examination process. The ILACP, in conjunction with Standard & Associates, Inc., a Chicago-based public safety consulting firm, oversaw a rigorous development and review process that involved police chiefs from across the state.
The program is designed to recognize those law enforcement professionals who excel in all facets of the police chief function. To maintain certification status, police chiefs must meet on-going requirements and apply for re-certification every five years.
On Monday, August 8th, at the regular meeting of the City Council, Chief Melton was presented with his certification by Darren Gault, Chief of Police, City of Moline and 2 nd Vice President of the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police.
