The Leading Authority For Campus Public Safety

Government Relations Committee

Government Relations Committee

IACLEA’s Government Relations Committee consists of campus law enforcement and public safety executives representing both public and private institutions of higher education. Members evaluate bills and policies and recommend to the Board of Directors positions/actions that IACLEA should undertake. The Committee establishes IACLEA’s legislative priorities, determining the initiatives that will receive the most focus.

IACLEA may be asked to take a position on an amendment or a change to legislation with very little notice (one day or so before a vote will be taken).

The 2020 chair is Michael Murphy, assistant director of security, Rockefeller University.

The committee meets in person at the Annual Conference & Exposition and by conference calls monthly.



For more information on the Government Relations Committee or how to get involved, please contact Director of Government and External Relations Altmann R. Pannell, (202) 618-8118,
