The Albemarle County Sheriff's Office was recognized for re-accreditation Wednesday morning.
The Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards Commission has reviewed dozens of standards and policies over the past few weeks. And after checking a range of areas, like how the department monitors it's detention facility and the way police reports are written and filed, the commission says the Albemarle County department is in full compliance.
"It makes me feel real good as the sheriff to know that an outside agency has come in and says we're doing everything right from a policy procedural standpoint. I think it helps the county rest easier about liability issues," said Albemarle County Sheriff, Chip Harding.
The Albemarle County Sheriff's Office is just one of ten in Virginia that have been accredited for eight years or more.
