Mission & History
Core Purpose: To advance campus public safety
Mission: The International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA) advances public safety for educational institutions by providing training, research, advocacy, accreditation, education, and professional services. IACLEA is the leading authority for campus public safety.
History: The International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA), was initially formulated by 11 college and university security directors. They came together on November 6, 1958, on the Arizona State University campus to discuss job challenges and mutual problems and specifically to create a clearinghouse for information and issues that campus directors across the country shared.
Today IACLEA is the leading authority for campus public safety. Our members represent campus law enforcement and security issues before law and policy makers, higher education officials, and members of the public around the globe. In 2018, IACLEA celebrated its 60th anniversary during the Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida. Check out some of the highlights over the years in the graphic below.
