Want to really stretch your training budget while providing A+ training to your personnel? Reach out to IACLEA to request a campus public safety training in your area. IACLEA’s new training director is flipping the traditional training model upside down and making it easier and more affordable to participate in IACLEA’s expanding training offerings.
IACLEA is now working with public safety agencies to bring in-person training to you—in addition to traditional trainings that convene attendees from a variety of locations at one venue. You do the on-the-ground work: assemble the participants, secure a location, set up the venue, prepare logistics (A/V, food, lodging, if necessary). We send the trainer, at a greatly reduced cost than sending numerous people to a training venue.
Current offerings from our Universal Issues series include:
- Addressing Mental Health Concerns on Campus
- When Hate Comes to Campus—preparing for violent protest and counter-protest
- Protest Preparation and Response
- Trauma Informed Sexual Assault Investigations
And more courses are in the works!
IACLEA member institution Texas Woman’s University (TWU) in Denton recently hosted IACLEA’s Sexual Assault on Campus: A Trauma-Informed Response course. TWU worked with IACLEA Director of Training Josh Bronson to modify the basic IACLEA class to their specific needs surrounding content and scheduling of officers, enabling the most officers to attend. The agency paid for the one-day class using grant funds. Securing grant funding is the method by which many of the schools that have used the Training on Request model have brought IACLEA to their campuses. There are many grants available to campuses on the local, state, and federal levels.
