Orange Park Police Department loses accreditation
ORANGE PARK, Fla. -- The town of Orange Park is now officially patrolled by an unaccredited police force.
The department failed to submit all of the required paperwork to the Florida Police Accreditation Coalition Inc. needed by June 8.
Action News talked with one town councilman who said the loss of the accreditation means nothing more than a few accreditation stickers will come off of the patrol cars and that the public will see no change in protection.
The department employs around two dozen personnel and serves some 8,500 homes.
