Challenges. There has been no shortage of challenges lately. A worldwide pandemic, social and political unrest, polarization, natural disasters, and much more. And through it all, police and public safety professionals have been unwavering in their commitment and adaptability. You are there day in and day out to help people and keep our communities safe. IACLEA is here to support you in this mission.
Change: it never comes easily. It takes commitment, as well as an acknowledgment that re-evaluating and revising what we have done for years does not necessarily mean we were doing things incorrectly. It means we are constantly striving to be the best we can possibly be, as well as responsive to evolving circumstances Change should not be taken lightly and should be developed and implemented strategically.
Leadership. You are leaders in your communities and understand that being a leader sometimes involves difficult conversations. IACLEA—the leader in campus public safety—can assist in having those difficult conversations.
With those things in mind, IACLEA is pleased to bring you a series of summits aimed at assisting you in overcoming the challenges of our time, changing the narrative around police and public safety, and demonstrating the leadership that we know you possess. Beginning in late September and lasting through January 2021, IACLEA will convene police and public safety leaders to discuss current issues:
- community trust and legitimacy
- policy and accountability
- training and education
- officer safety and wellness
- the ever-changing role of police and public safety.
These summits will be conducted virtually and will be free for IACLEA members to attend. A summary document will be released after each summit to assist you in having these conversations in your communities. Additional information and registration information regarding the summits will be released in the coming weeks.
