Upon re-accreditation in August 2015, Prince George’s County was only the sixth jurisdiction in the world, and the fifth in the United States, to meet NAED’s rigorous accreditation criteria and to receive this prestigious recognition.
Triple accreditation tells our public safety partners and the citizens that the Public Safety Communications dispatch and 9-1-1 personnel are properly trained, effective, and efficient in providing assistance to citizens in need of Police, Fire and Emergency Medical Services.
The Accreditation process does not end after accreditation is achieved. The agency must continue to maintain and demonstrate proof that compliance with NAED standards is maintained on an on-going basis.
Through the dedication to excellence, leadership and professionalism of the personnel serving our citizens, Public Safety Communications is one of the top 9-1-1 centers in the world. Most importantly, it is able to provide the highest level of service to Prince George’s County’s citizens and first responders.
