FL's Department Of Financial Services Anticipates Accredited Status

Tallahasee, FL (CompNewsNetwork) – Today, Colonel Vicki Cutcliffe announced that a team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) will arrive Wednesday, January 21, to examine all aspects of the Florida Department of Financial Services, Division of Insurance Fraud's (FDFS/DIF) policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services, for the purpose of accreditation.  The Division of Insurance Fraud has to comply with approximately 260 standards in order to receive accredited status.
"Accreditation is a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence, and we are excited to achieve this noteworthy status," said Colonel Cutcliffe.
The Accreditation Manager for FDFS/DIF is Captain Robert Brongel. The assessment team is comprised of law enforcement practitioners from Florida law enforcement agencies: these assessors will review written materials, interview individuals, and visit offices and other places where compliance can be witnessed.  The CFA Assessment Team Leader is Ms. Dianne Hill of the Hernando County Sheriff's Office; other team members include Lt. Sheila Rowden of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Lt. Marc Hayes of the Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office.
Once the Commission's assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full Commission, which will then decide if the agency is to receive accredited status.  The Division's accreditation is for three years.  Verification by the team that the Division of Insurance Fraud meets the Commission's standards is part of a voluntary process to gain or maintain accreditation.
As part of the on-site assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team.  Comments must be in writing and must address the agency's ability to comply with CFA standards.
