The Arizona Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (ALEAP) Certification Programs directly encourage Arizona’s Law Enforcement Executives to pursue a recommended standard for police leadership that is measurable and attainable. By offering proof of these standards to the ALEAP Commission, individual police leaders can attain ALEAP Accredited Command Executive (ACE) or Accredited Chief Executive-Advanced (ACE-ADVANCED) Certification status. The ACE and ACE-ADVANCED Certification Programs also will promote and encourage continued education through Re-Certification Program requirements.  Five leadership staff members of the Prescott Valley Police Department are now Accredited Command Executives sanctioned through the Arizona Association of Chiefs of Police. Chief Robert Ticer, Cmdr. James Edelstein, Cmdr. Jeremy Martin, Lt. Jason Kaufman, and Lt. Nancy Roberts have achieved the designation.
