    Forrest General Hospital’s Department of Public Safety Achieves Re-accreditation


    Forrest General Hospital’s Department of Public Safety achieved re-accreditation from the Mississippi Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission (MSLEAC) on February 20, 2019, for a period of four years.

    According to the report provided by MSLEAC, “The assessment team found the Forrest General Hospital Police Department to be a professional full-service law enforcement agency that provides a superior level of law enforcement services to the Forrest General Hospital properties. It is clear that the administration is dedicated to committing the resources and attention necessary to remain a MSLEAC accredited agency.” 

    After an extensive review, including an on-site assessment, MSLEAC reported Forrest General Public Safety Department met all the required standards. There are currently 29 accredited Law Enforcement agencies in Mississippi. 

    Forrest General Department of Public Safety Director, Wayne Landers, said, “I am proud of the men and women of the Forrest General Police Department and what we have accomplished together. This could not happen without a group of police officers who are committed to striving for continued excellence and without outstanding Administrative support.”
