Findlay Township became nationally accredited in 1993 by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA), and is 1 of only 26 municipal law enforcement agencies in the United States with less than 25 members that have achieved the elite status of full national accreditation. Additionally, Findlay Township became accredited in Pennsylvania by the PA Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission (PLEAC) immediately after the establishment of a statewide program in 2003 and has continued to maintain accreditation on both the national and state levels.
