The Berlin Police Department is a State and Internationally Accredited law enforcement agency. The agency has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) since March 1996. It is one of only 16 agencies in the state to be so recognized. The Police Officers Standards and Training Council, (P.O.S.T.C.) also awarded State Accreditation on the Berlin Police Department in November of 2004.

The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc.(CALEA), administers the international accreditation program. The accreditation program requires agencies to comply with state-of-the-art standards in four basic areas; policy and procedures, administration, operations, and support services.

A team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA), visited Police Headquarters December 5th - 7th, 2009 to examine all aspects of the Berlin Police Department's policies, procedures, management, operations and support services. The Berlin Police Department had to comply with 309 of the applicable mandatory standards and at least 80% of the non-mandatory standards in order to gain accredited status. The department was found to be in compliance with all 309 mandatory standards and 74 of the 82 non-mandatory standards or 90%. The Berlin Police Department has been an internationally accredited agency since 1996 and received its fourth re-accreditation award and Flagship status in March of 2010.
