The Leading Authority For Campus Public Safety

Peer Review Program: PReP

Peer Review Program: PReP

The IACLEA PReP is an organizational assessment of a campus public safety agency’s administration and operations. Using a framework consistent with professional standards, PReP provides clients with an overall assessment of their agency’s policies and practices. The peer review examines significant aspects of campus public safety administration including organization and management, operations and enforcement, administrative and technical services, human resources, and Clery Act and Title IX.

This service is ideal for incoming chiefs and directors, administrators seeking an objective overview of a core university function, and long-term agency heads who want insights from “fresh eyes.” The PReP assessment enables the agency to successfully manage emerging conditions or trends, placing special emphasis on actions that ensure the agency is accountable to campus administrators and the campus community.

A three-person team will spend time on site conducting interviews of key public safety staff, campus administrators, and stakeholders, reviewing agency policies, plans and reports, and observing agency operations. The team will prepare a draft written report of findings, observations, and recommendations for the agency’s review prior to submitting the final report.

The scope of PReP topic areas can include:

1. Organization and Management

  • Status and Authority
  • Agency Functions, Roles, and Responsibilities
  • Goals and Objectives
  • Policies and Procedures

2. Operations and Enforcement
