Collaborative Reform Initiative Technical Assistance Center (CRI-TAC)IACLEA Member agencies are eligible for free technical assistance on a wide range of issues. The CRI-TAC brings together a coalition of the United States’ top public safety organizations under the leadership of the IACP to provide tailored technical assistance to policing agencies through a $7 million award from the Department of Justice’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office).

Using a “by the field, for the field” approach, the CRI-TAC supports state, local, tribal, and campus agencies through a host of methods, including training, peer-to-peer consultation, and strategic planning. These resources are designed to support agencies on a range of public safety, crime reduction, and community policing topics. To learn more or request technical assistance, click here

Emerging Issues Series: This new program has been a highlight for IACLEA Members across the United States and beyond. The concept of this training is to identify emerging issues and within 40 days, respond with one-day training programs led by subject-matter experts. Emerging Issue trainings are hosted at IACLEA member institutions across the country. Recent training topics include when hate comes to campus, protests, and complex coordinated attacks. 

Alternatively, IACLEA also coordinates experts in the field to offer emerging issues conference call briefings to members when the opportunity arises. Recent briefings include cannabis legalization in Canada (with Dave Berry, Vice President of Regulatory Services for the Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis Commission), and a briefing on fentanyl and opioids (with the US Drug Enforcement Administration). 

Distance Learning Series: IACLEA holds educational webinars throughout the academic year that cover a vast array of timely topics selected by IACLEA Members. Members from all over the world join our webinars at no cost. Webinars are archived in IACLEA Connections for one year or more, giving IACLEA Members access to review the webinar from anywhere at any time.

Leadership Institutes: As part of its 2019-2020 Training Calendar, IACLEA now offers a Leadership Series--with two institutes designed to support current and future leaders achieving excellence. Each will convene in winter 2020, and registration is open. These include the First Line Supervisor Institute and Executive Development Institute

Section-Specific Training: IACLEA offers dedicated programming, online networking opportunities, and training for critical personnel in key roles at public safety agencies. Staff at member institutions are eligible to join IACLEA sections for only $50 per year. Current IACLEA Sections include Public Information Officers (PIO), and Investigators

Training on RequestIACLEA has flipped the traditional training model upside down and made it easier and more affordable to participate in IACLEA’s expanding campus public safety training offerings.

See an IACLEA training you like, but can’t make it? Or want training for numerous people in your agency—but don’t have the budget to fly people all over the country? IACLEA may be able to bring in-person training to you.

You do the on-the-ground work: assemble the participants, secure a location, set up the venue. We send the trainer, at a greatly reduced cost than sending numerous people to training locations.

Universal Issues Series: This program debuted in January of 2018, and focuses on universal challenges campus public safety professionals face. Regardless if a department is sworn or non-sworn, a two-year or four-year institution, urban or rural, private or public, unfortunately, there are many ubiquitous challenges campus public safety professionals confront regularly. Topics include mental health on campus and a trauma-informed response to sexual assault on campus.
