The McHenry County Sheriff's Office is committed to maintaining optimum standards, providing the citizens of McHenry County with a strong and well-prepared law enforcement agency. As a result, the department was awarded accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) in March of 2011. To do so, the Sheriff's office was required to meet standards addressing nine major law enforcement areas:

  1. Role, responsibilities, and relationships
  2. Organization, management, and administration
  3. Personnel structure
  4. Personnel process
  5. Operations
  6. Operation support
  7. Traffic operations
  8. Detainee and court-related activities
  9. Auxiliary and technical services

We are very proud of our deputies and our department for this accomplishment.
