McHENRY – The McHenry Police Department will undergo examination for reaccreditation starting Monday.

Assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc. will examine the police department’s policies, procedures, management, operations and support services. The examination is part of a voluntary process to earn recognition of professional excellence, according to a news release from McHenry police.

Agency employees and the public are encouraged to attend a public information session at 6 p.m. Dec. 6 at the McHenry Municipal Building, 333 S. Green St., to comment on the department’s ability to comply with accreditation standards.
