In December the Millington Police Department passed its State Accreditation. The Department was awarded the Accreditation at the March monthly Mayor and Board of Alderman meeting by Chief Art Heun of the Dyersburg Police Department. The Accreditation is a three year process and the Department must be re-accredited every three years. It is a lengthy process which requires a lot of man-hours. The Department will receive a discounted rate, per officer on their insurance for being State Accredited. It also helps the Department in law suits showing that the Department meets the standards required by the state. Posing with the accreditation are Chief Rita Stanback and Inspector Charlie Coleman.
