This week was CALEA's Fall Conference and Garden Grove was lucky enough to host this great event. CALEA (The Commission on Accreditation on Law Enforcement Agencies) is a credentialing authority for law enforcement agencies. The programs in CALEA are made to ensure that standards and initiatives within law enforcement are being upheld. This information is from the website:
Specifically, CALEA’s goals are to:
- Strengthen crime prevention and control capabilities;
- Formalize essential management procedures;
- Establish fair and nondiscriminatory personnel practices;
- Improve service delivery;
- Solidify interagency cooperation and coordination; and
- Increase community and staff confidence in the agency.

CALEA held its conference at the Hyatt Regency and a lot of fun events took place throughout the week! Tonight was a Hospitality Night, which is basically a fundraiser full of delicious food and fun prizes! This event was at Fandango's, which is the restaurant next-door to the Hyatt. Court Princesses Valerie and Ally were able to come and help with the festivities. We got to sell raffle tickets (as usual) but it was a lot of fun! Practically bought tickets, and a lot of them! There were a lot of fun prizes up for grabs, like restaurant gift cards, Coca-Cola products, trips, etc. And we have to talk about the food! It was delicious! The food was served buffet-style and the girls and I were able to indulge in foods from many local restaurants, including: Oggi's Pizza, Buca di Beppo, Red Robin, and some Mexican and Korean Restaurants. I met a lot of people tonight and I am glad I got to be there. And of course, this event is not official until I sell raffle tickets! :)
Me with the Teen Princesses: Valerie and Ally.... love them!
