Annual Conference

Registration is Open! 

Registration is OPEN for IACLEA's 61st Annual Conference & Exposition, which this year will be held in a second-to-none city: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, June 25-28, 2019. There is a significant early-bird discount for members and non-members available until April 25. #IACLEA2019 is expected to be the largest Canadian IACLEA conference to date! Don't miss it!

This conference includes all the elements that make IACLEA events invaluable. 


EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM: The WEEKDAYS ONLY event will provide the most relevant and timely educational sessions in the campus law enforcement and public safety field. The plenary session speakers are:

  • Bill Bratton, former Los Angeles PD, and New York City Police Commissioner. His talk is sponsored by LiveSafe Mobile.
  • Bill Evans, executive director of public safety and chief of police for Boston College, who recently transitioned from the Boston Police Department.
  • Attorney Eric Daigle, back by popular demand after his well-received session in 2018. His presentation is sponsored by PowerDMS.
  • FBI Special Agent in Charge Christopher Combs, who oversaw the 2018 investigation into the Austin, Texas, serial bombing, which over 19 days terrorized the city, and killed two people and injured five.  

Energized experts submitted a record number of workshop proposals. The full program of more than 30 workshops will be announced soon. Each will cover a relevant concern or new development in campus public safety.

A plenary-style Industry Challenge on mental health concerns on campus will be presented by Securitas and feature leading experts. See the January/February Campus Law Enforcement Journal for a preview article.

Also, don't miss the pre-conference workshop on Monday, June 24, focused on emergency planning and preparedness. Additional fees apply.

"The sessions were valuable, and I had a hard time deciding which to go to because there were so many good ones." – 2018 conference attendee


EXPOSITION: The exhibit hall will again be a lively whirlwind of new products and services. You can schedule one-on-one meetings with IACLEA Corporate Partners. And—new this year—we'll offer presentations by companies, joined by a representative of a member agency who is using their product, so you can obtain real user feedback.

ENTERTAINMENT & MEALS: IACLEA has scheduled many social functions, allowing for networking with your peers.  Chief's Night will be held at stunning Prospect Point in Stanley Park overlooking the Lion's Gate Bridge.  In addition, all attendees are invited to lunch with our Corporate Partners and the welcome reception with our valued exhibitors.
