MUSKEGON, Mich. — A group of assessors with the Michigan Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission will inspect the operations and procedures of the Muskegon Police Department.

As a result, the general public is encouraged to offer comments by phone or email, according to the Muskegon Department of Public Safety.

“Verification by the team that the Muskegon Police Department meets the Michigan Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission’s ‘best practice’ standards is part of a voluntary process to achieve accreditation, a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence,” says Director Lewis.

Those wishing to offer comments may do so by calling 231-724-3129 on Jan. 21 between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. or by sending an email to

We’re told comments by phone will be limited to five minutes and must only concern MPD’s capacity to abide by standards set forth by the MLEAC’s standards. Anyone wishing to receive a copy of the standards may call Lt. Scott Zonnebelt at 231-724-6773.
