IACLEA History

The International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators, Inc. (IACLEA), was initially formulated by 11 college and university security directors. These 11 directors came together on Nov. 6, 1958, on the campus of Arizona State University, to discuss job challenges and mutual problems and specifically to create a clearinghouse for information and issues shared by campus directors across the country. IACLEA celebrated its 50th Anniversary at its Annual Conference in June 2008.

  • Membership: Today, IACLEA has over 3,200 members at approximately 1,175 colleges and universities.

  • Annual Conference: IACLEA's Annual Conference features a professional program and informal participation aimed toward discussions of mutual problems, needs, and solutions to these problems.

  • Journal: The Association's Campus Law Enforcement Journal, which is published bimonthly, is recognized as the professional voice of campus law enforcement administrators, with a readership of more than 2,400.

IACLEA provides a forum for members to discuss issues, keep abreast of new ideas and to find solutions to the various problems on their campuses.

By virtue of its members, IACLEA has taken positive steps toward strengthening the future of our college and university campuses. With more than a half century of experience, the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators can look with pride to the past and with optimism to the future.
