The only costs for the Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards Commission (VLEPSC) program are those incurred for room and board for the assessment team at the time of the on-site assessment, and a $250.00 application fee upon receipt and acceptance of the Agency Participation Agreement. Agencies that are insured by the Virginia Risk Sharing Association (VRSA) do not have to pay the application fee or annual fees as those costs are covered by VRSA.

State accreditation is the best measure of an agency’s compliance with professional law enforcement standards, as determined by the Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards Commission. The Commission consists of Virginia sheriffs and police chiefs selected for their expertise and knowledge. Adherence to an acknowledged body of professional standards may help protect an agency against a variety of potential liability problems.
