The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office is the first in Michigan to be fully accredited by the Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Accreditation, according to a news release.

The voluntary accreditation program is based on the achievement of 108 standards of policing. The office received accreditation on September 14.

“We are pleased to be the first sheriff’s office in the state of Michigan to receive MLEAC accreditation,” Sheriff Mike Murphy said in a release. “I would like to thank and congratulate my staff on this achievement because at the end of the day, every man and woman in this office made it possible and in turn makes us successful.”

The sheriff’s office is one of 54 accredited agencies in Michigan. The Howell Police Department was accredited in 2020.
