A national public safety accreditation agency has named Las Vegas City Councilman and former Metro officer Stavros Anthony as one of its commissioners.
Anthony will serve as on of three new commissioners of CALEA, the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. Anthony worked for Metro from 1980 to 2009 before becoming a city councilman for Ward 4.
“It’s good to be back in law enforcement a little bit, but I’ll be part of a group that’s trying to make sure police departments throughout the nation are professional in nature and are following a set of standards that have been developed by police leaders throughout the country,” Anthony said.
Vandalia, Ohio, Police Chief Doug Knight and Clark County, Wash., Sheriff Gary Lucas were also appointed in this round. Four other commissioners were reappointed.
CALEA accredits public safety agencies who meet their standards on several levels, including operations, personnel processes, court relations and other technical services.
Metro is currently accredited by CALEA for both their law enforcement and communications department.
