Airport Police and Public Safety
To ensure the traveling public’s safety while at the airport, our friendly and professionally trained Airport Police maintain a visible presence and make themselves available for anyone’s assistance. And if medical emergencies occur, they administer help until the airport’s EMTs arrive on the scene.
Anyone wishing to provide comments regarding our agency's compliance with CALEA (The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc.) standards, engagement in the service community, delivery of public safety services, and overall candidacy for accreditation status, may do so through the Public Comment Portal here. These comments can be in the form of commendations or concerns. The overall intent of the accreditation process is to provide our agency with information to support continuous improvement, as well as foster the pursuit of professional excellence.
Important: CALEA is not an investigatory body and subsequently the public portal should not be used to submit information for such purposes. Additionally, there will be no response other than acknowledge of submissions; however, the information will be considered in context to its relevancy to compliance with standards and the tenets of CALEA Accreditation.
