IACLEA Releases Sample Non-Sworn Policies and Procedures

Through the work of IACLEA’s Non-Sworn Committee, St. Thomas Aquinas College (STAC) Office of Safety and Security, and Biola University Campus Safety, IACLEA released sample non-sworn agency policies and procedures. The policies and procedures are based on STAC's, an IACLEA Accredited agency. These documents are released as an IACLEA member benefit. IACLEA reminds you that in using these policies and procedures, they should not just be copied and pasted, but rather each agency must assess the policies and procedures and adapt them to its campus community.

Documents in 17 policy categories were released, matching the IACLEA Accreditation standards. Policies and procedures on conduct, use of force, and critical incident management are among those that were released.

To find the policies and procedures you can either click on the link or go in through CONNECTIONS ( and then follow the path below:

  • Director Jim Nawoichyk (STAC) (New York)
  • Chief John Ojeisekhoba and Deputy Chief Randy Richardson (Biola University) (California)
  • and the Non-Sworn Committee Co-Chairs Director Bill Bessette (College of Southern Maryland) and Chief Vic Clay (California Institute of Technology).
