Recertification

The principal purposes of the Certified Law Enforcement Executive (CLEE) program are the advancement of professional competence and continued professional development. To maintain certification, a CLEE must accumulate professional points and submit a completed Re-Certification Application three years after the original date of certification and each re-certification. Professional points for re-certification must be earned during the three-year period following the initial certification or each re-certification.

The deadline is the third January 1st following the date appearing on the original CLEE certificate or the most recent re-certification notification. (See the Re-Certification Time Table by class below. For example, Class XXI graduated in 2017. The class graduates’ deadline will be January 1, 2020, and then again January 1, 2023) The CLEE Director will notify the CLEE graduates by July 1 whose re-certification is coming up for renewal the following January 1. The CLEE Director will send one advance notice of the CLEE re-certification. The letter will be sent via email and by mailed letter.  The notification will include language that this is the only advance notice that will be sent, and the CLEE graduate is advised to keep the document in safekeeping.

The notification letter will inform the CLEE graduate that their three-year re-certification is due to expire on December 31, and that the re-certification application and payment must be received no later than January 1. Anyone who does not submit their re-certification application by January 1 will be de-certified automatically effective with action by the CLEE Board at their next board meeting in February.

A CLEE graduate who failed to submit the re-certification application by the deadline and thus, was de-certified, may appeal the CLEE Board decision only by submitting any mitigating circumstances in writing.  The CLEE board will consider the mitigating circumstances and decide the merits on a case-by-case basis.  The CLEE board decision will be final.

A CLEE graduate who is de-certified for failure to submit re-certification in a timely manner may apply for re-certification by submitting a re-certification application within one year of their de-certification notice. They will need to document a minimum of 95 re-certification points, and pay a fee of $150.  Upon board approval of the re-instatement of their certification, they resume the same due date re-certification schedule as their graduating class per the Re-Certification Time Table (see below).

PROFESSIONAL POINTS

The CLEE Board has expanded the variety of educational and leadership activities through which a CLEE graduate can accumulate professional points.  The Board will continually review professional and educational activities to identify those that in its judgment merit inclusion.

The four dimensions of the Career Index provide the pattern for the re-certification requirements.  Within the applicable three-year period, 70 out of a maximum of 140 professional points are required for re-certification.  The Re-Certification Application provides detailed information about the weighting and scoring of professional points for each of the four dimensions.  (Note: minimum point requirements for Dimensions Three and Four are effective with all re-certification applications due January 1, 2018 and thereafter.)

 Dimension One:  Experience (maximum 30 professional points)

Dimension One recognizes increased leadership responsibility since certification or re-certification.  It also recognizes continuance as a CEO or, if not the CEO, continuing responsibility in a position as a policy maker or supervisor.

Dimension Two:  Formal Education (maximum 20 professional points)

Dimension Two recognizes documented formal education accomplished since certification or re-certification.  Formal education includes a degree received or courses successfully completed at an accredited institution within the past three years.

Dimension Three:  Continuing Education (minimum 15 and maximum 45 professional points)

Dimension Three recognizes attendance at seminars or workshops designed to develop a CLEE graduate’s skills continually, knowledge and abilities for providing leadership in law enforcement.   The Re-Certification Application provides examples of topics and potential sources of seminars or workshops.

Dimension Four:  Professional Related Experience (minimum 10 and maximum 45 professional points)

Dimension Four recognizes a CLEE graduate’s contribution to the profession and service to the community through many different activities.
