The Leading Authority For Campus Public Safety



Accreditation Program

Adherence to the highest standards of professionalism and excellence is vital to the success of campus public safety departments in fulfilling their mission to protect students, faculty, staff, and the millions of yearly visitors to colleges and universities.

IACLEA represents campus public safety leaders at more than 1,000 institutions of higher education and offers IACLEA Accreditation to colleges and university law enforcement, security, and public safety departments. IACLEA Accreditation constitutes recognition that a department conforms to the highest professional standards for campus law enforcement and protective services.

IACLEA urges all campus public safety departments to attain IACLEA Accreditation as a means to assure the public, parents, and the university community that your campus public safety agency adheres to the highest professional standards.
