Dear IACLEA Members:
These are extraordinary and challenging times. It’s important to all of us at IACLEA—your Board of Directors, leadership, and staff—that you know we are here for you. In the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic, I assure you that IACLEA is here and is ready to share its support.
You may already be aware that IACLEA has posted a variety of COVID-19 resources, advisories, and information in IACLEA CONNECTIONS and also on the IACLEA website, so that these resources are available to non-members. We continue to update the information daily.
In addition to distributing information, IACLEA CONNECTIONS, our online members portal, shares near daily discussions among members, as each phase of planning and adapting to the crisis unfolds. Please take advantage of CONNECTIONS for reliable answers and rapid, practical advice from your peers. Put your questions and experiences online, and you are certain to find someone in IACLEA’s network who can respond with recommendations. In turn, other members will also appreciate your own recommendations and comments online.
Need your IACLEA CONNECTIONS login refreshed? Please contact member services at email@example.com or 855-442-2532.
IACLEA now convenes weekly COVID-19 Rapid Response Briefing Calls and follows up with a short debrief document summarizing the key takeaways. These live events are archived in the COVID-19 Resource Library in IACLEA CONNECTIONS for future learning. Our most recent event, held March 26, focuses on officer and personnel well-being and is available here.
Be certain, too, to read and scan through our regular member communications, to include the News Digest and the IACLEA Bulletin. I encourage you to review and share these items with others in your agency or department when they reach you on email.
Next month, IACLEA will roll out its new, expansive online learning platform. Very soon, we will expand delivery of training and services to you and your campus public safety team online, which you can study in your time and place. Please stand by in the coming weeks for more details.
While things are changing daily, know that IACLEA stands ready to assist you in every way possible. We thank you for your commitment and support to your communities. Stay safe, and we’ll get through this together.
