The Cornell University Police department has achieved accreditation for the third time from the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA), the leading authority for campus public safety.
To be accredited, Cornell University Police demonstrated to outside, impartial experts its compliance with national best-practice standards. Fewer than 100 agencies have earned this recognition.
“We congratulate the Cornell University Police on achieving IACLEA accreditation, a unique distinction among campus police and public safety agencies,” said IACLEA President Eric Heath, associate vice president for safety and security at the University of Chicago. “The men and women protecting your campus have proven through policy and practice the commitment to operate at the highest level of the profession.”
IACLEA accreditation signifies an agency’s ongoing commitment to excellence and state-of-the-art performance in every aspect of its operations. The standards guide the recruitment, selection, training and professional development of agency personnel and overall agency operations.
“The Cornell University Police are dedicated to the safety and well-being of our campus community, and with this special honor to receive confirmation that the Cornell University Police Department continues to meet the highest standards for campus law enforcement,” said David Honan, chief of the Cornell University Police. “Achieving accreditation is an important part of our accountability to our community.”
