A first for Marietta College and the first in all of Ohio.
Marietta College's Police Department becomes an accredited agency.
The department is now accredited through the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators.
Since September 2012 the department worked to comply with 203 different professional standards.
Starting from scratch the department re-wrote and organized their whole policy as well.
Chief Jim Weaver says they set their sights high to make sure they are providing the college, its students, faculty and staff with the best service and safety.
