The Office of Professional Standards is directed by Lieutenant Tammy Crawford. The Hall County Sheriff's Office has met the requirements of a highly regarded and broadly recognized body of law enforcement standards. The department received State Certification in July, 2003 through the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police. In March, 2005 the department was awarded International Law Enforcement Accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. State Certification and International Accreditation acknowledges the implementation of policies and procedures that are conceptually sound, operationally effective and represents the satisfactory completion of a process of thorough, agency wide self-evaluation, concluded by an exacting outside review by a team of independent assessors. Certification/Accreditation provides a method for members of our community to gauge our organization's professionalism using internationally and state recognized standards.

One of the most significant benefits of the Certification/Accreditation is the reduction of the number of lawsuits and the reduced severity of civil litigation. It also represents the Hall County Sheriff's Office acceptance of the obligation to continue the quest for professional excellence. Accreditation/Certification is awarded for a period of three (3) years and requires a continuing commitment from the accredited agency. Additionally, The Office of Professional Standards is responsible for the Department's Written Directive System.
