Denver Sheriff Is Triple Crown Certified

triple Crown Award shield

The Triple Crown distinction is rare. Since the establishment of the award in 1993, fewer than 100 sheriffs offices have qualified. Established by the National Sheriff's Association, this certification recognizes sheriff offices that achieve simultaneous accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, the American Correctional Association, and the National Commission on Correctional Healthcare. Achieving these accreditations individually is a daunting task and acquiring all three at the same time is an extraordinary feat. Learn more about our certifications.
