Committee Report

GMA’s 16-member Excellence in Policing Committee co-chaired by College Park Mayor Bianca Motley Broom and Lagrange Police Chief Lou Dekmar worked to develop a certification program to support agencies and cities to help achieve, maintain, and recognize excellence in policing. 

The group was tasked with developing an affordable, achievable, scalable, and measurable set of best practices and guidelines for public safety agencies to serve as a standalone certification for cities, and to utilize as part of GMA’s Equity and Inclusion Certification Program.

The Final Report was adopted by the GMA Board of Directors in January, 2022.
