TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The group scheduled to assess the Tucson Airport Authority Police Department for reaccreditation canceled next week's meetings and extended the accreditation.


According to a news release from the Tucson Airport Authority, the Commission of Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. canceled the meetings because of "extenuating circumstances."


No date was given for the expiration of the accreditation, but the meetings will be rescheduled for later this year, the release said.


The meetings were to take place Aug. 3 to Aug. 6 at Tucson International Airport.  

The TAAPD received its first accreditation in 1996 and is required to reapply every three years; 2014 will be the sixth time that TAAPD has reapplied.  

Officials with CALEA were to go over TAAPD's policies and procedures, as well as management, operations and support services.  

No information was given about plans for rescheduling a public forum scheduled for Aug. 5.  

A copy of the CALEA standards is made available to the public at the TAAPD Office, located in the terminal.
