We are very proud to announce that on Saturday, November 5th the Commission on Law Enforcement Accreditation voted unanimously to award the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office our CALEA reaccreditation. The accreditation shows that the agency has "demonstrated its voluntary commitment to law enforcement excellence" and "exemplified the best professional practices in the conduct of its responsibilities". We are very proud of this honor. We were only the 9th Sheriff's Office in South Carolina to be accredited by CALEA and we are still the smallest one in the state to have received this honor. This is only one component in our agency-wide vision to be the statewide standard in policing. Congratulations to all of our employees for all of the hard work involved.
