(Hershey) -- This week a national accrediting organization will be reviewing the Pennsylvania State Police and the public is invited to weigh in.

The Pennsylvania State Police has recieved accreditation seven times from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, or CALEA, starting in 1993.

Public Information Officer, Cpl. Adam Reed, says CALEA will be back this week to see that the agency is still meeting national standards.

"They take a look at training, record-keeping, and many aspects of the operational segments of the department, so it really is an all-encompassing effort," Reed said.

Residents can participate in a call-in hearing on Monday, August 8th between one and three p-m by calling 1-888-760-7673.

A second hearing at the Pennsylvania State Police Academy in Hershey is the following day at three-thirty.
