NORTH SMITHFIELD – The Rhode Island Police Accreditation Commission has named the North Smithfield Police Department’s Lt. Gregory Landry the 2023 Assessor of the Year.

Landry, who has worked for the department for some 22 years, was named to the honor at the commission’s annual awards ceremony on Wednesday, March 13 at Rhode Island College.

The commission recognizes outstanding work by both individuals and agencies at the event, in acknowledgement of the accreditation process, an optional internal review and assessment of department policies and procedures. To receive accreditation, considered a signal of high standards of professionalism in law enforcement, agencies across Rhode Island systematically conduct in-depth reviews of every aspect of their own organization, management and operations.

Accredited departments are re-assessed every three years by the commission to maintain their certification or accreditation status.

Landry has served as the department’s accreditation manager since March of 2020, prior to NSPD’s last certification in 2021. NSPD is due for its next reaccreditation from the commission this June.

The lieutenant will celebrate 22 years with the department in August, and also serves as co-handler of NSPD’s therapy dog Libby, and has assisted with other community outreach programs such as the Unified Sports program and collecting Christmas toys for children in need with the Explorers.
