Salem Sheriff's Office gets perfect accreditation score second time in a row


The Salem Sheriff's Office is awarded a perfect accreditation score for the second time in a row.

Seven different law enforcement agencies from across the state met at the Salem Civic Center Wednesday.

The group reviewed each agencies accreditation based on the standards of administration, finances, operations , and the way evidence is handled.

The Salem Sheriff, Eric Atkins, says it's not easy to get a perfect score.

Different teams come in and access your agencies, so different eyes see different things," Salem Sheriff, Eric Atkins says. "So to be able to come through two times in a row with a perfect score is a real tribute to our city."

Sheriff Atkins says being accredited assures the community there's proper training among officers.
