College and University Police Investigators Conference

College and University Police Investigators Conference


IACLEA established its first Investigators Section in 2018 and will continue to offer specialized training for college and universities. We're also pleased to announce a 3-day training course exclusively for sworn and non-sworn investigators. July 31-August 2, 2018, IACLEA is partnering with CUPIC to present a valuable training for investigators on campuses.

CUPIC, now in its 13th year, is the leading training conference for investigators at institutions of higher education. CUPIC focuses on aspects of and investigative techniques unique to investigations in college and university environments, including sexual assault, drug crime investigations, active shooter, and interview techniques. With the increase in hate crimes reported in 2017, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) likely will present on hate crimes trends and investigations during CUPIC 2018. 

The cost to attend this valuable conference is extremely low, only $100 for 3 days of high-quality programming delivered by national experts at all levels of law enforcement. It is held in the Washington, DC, area, near George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. There are numerous transportation options to reach the Fairfax Marriott in Fair Oaks, Virginia, site of the conference. Additionally, there are lots of fun and interesting sight-seeing and entertainment options close-by, including museums, music venues, outlet shopping, historical sites, and more.
