Telephone comments are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with CALEA’s standards.  A copy of the standards is available at the King County Sheriff’s Office.  The local contact person is Accreditation Manager Tara Murker, 206-205-7519.

Persons wishing to offer written comments about the King County Sheriff’s Office Communications Center’s ability to meet the standards for accreditation should write to:  Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA), 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320, Gainesville, Virginia, 20155.
