Celebrating Recently Accredited Agencies

In the past three months, the IACLEA Commission on Accreditation awarded accreditation to the following agencies. The entire IACLEA leadership congratulates each and every member of the following agencies on the significant achievement of earning IACLEA Accreditation!

“We are happy to recognize the University of Cincinnati for achieving its initial award of accreditation, as well as the four agencies that have achieved accreditation multiple times,” said Jessica Luedtke, chair of the Accreditation Commission.

“This diverse group of agencies reflects the growing ranks of accredited agencies.” 

This milestone places these agencies in an exclusive group of campus police and public safety agencies that have made the commitment and done the work to demonstrate their commitment to excellence: today, tomorrow, and into the future. Thank you to those agencies who submitted articles from their campus publications touting their accreditation awards.
