The Leesburg Police Department (LPD) is hoping to regain accreditation in January of 2024 that it lost Thursday because it failed to meet four out of the required 191 standards.

The standards in question include failure to conduct timely audits, updating policy language pertaining to property audits, and requalification of officers to use “less-lethal” shotguns.
