The Leading Authority For Campus Public Safety

Legislative Update

Legislative Update: 

Officer Sean Collier Campus Police Recognition Act of 2019 (H.R. 816)

Makes federal public safety officers benefits available to the families of sworn law enforcement officers employed by private colleges and universities.

IACLEA continues to engage with the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on the Judiciary and will initiate contact with allied national organizations, such as the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), to foster support for this legislation.


U.S. Department of Education- Proposed Title IX Regulation

IACLEA asks Members of Congress to thoroughly review the US Department of Education’s proposed changes to Title IX and assess its future impact on Institutions of Higher Education. 

IACLEA is opposed to additional regulations on Institutions of Higher Education that will cause more burdensome reporting work, taking away from the real duties of Public Safety Officials and Administrators.  These types of regulations will negatively impact public safety on campuses and within the IACLEA community.


Bipartisan Background Checks Act and Background Check Expansion Act of 2019 (H.R. 8 and S. 42)

Makes it unlawful to sell or transfer a firearm in any transaction without a background check.

This Act was introduced in the US House of Representatives in January 2019 & passed out of the House Committee on the Judiciary
