OCCC Community Invited to Comment on Campus Police Accreditation

(Published: 01-31-20)

A team of assessors from the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators will arrive on March 1 as part of the Oklahoma City Community College Campus Police Departments efforts to receive I A C L E A accreditation

A team of assessors from the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA) will arrive on March 1, 2020as part of the Oklahoma City Community College Campus Police Department’s (OCCC CPD) voluntary efforts to receive IACLEA accreditation. If accredited, OCCC CPD would be the only campus police department in the state to receive this international accreditation.

The IACLEA accreditation process examines all aspects of OCCC CPD’s policy and procedures, management, operation and support services. The department has to comply with 215 IACLEA standards, in order to achieve accredited status– a highly prized recognition of campus public safety professional excellence.

“The safety of OCCC students, employees and visitors is our first priority,” said OCCC President Jerry Steward. “OCCC is one of the safest campuses in the state thanks to the efforts of our campus police department. This accreditation illustrates our continued commitment to safety and security.”

Community members, college employees and the public are invited to offer feedback to the assessment team by calling (405) 686-6291 on March 2, 2020 between the hours of 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Telephone comments must address OCCC CPD’s ability to comply with IACLEA’s standards. The IACLEA Accreditation Standards Manual is available on the IACLEA website (www.iaclea.org).

Anyone wishing to submit written comments about OCCC CPD’s ability to comply with the standards for accreditation may send them to IACLEA Accreditation, 1110 Bonifant Street, Suite 330, Silver Spring, Maryland, 20910.

Officer P.T. Solinski is the accreditation manager for OCCC CPD. The assessment team is composed of experienced campus law enforcement professionals from out-of-state. The assessors will review written materials, interview individuals and inspect facilities.

Once the assessors complete their review, they will report to IACLEA, which will then decide if the department is granted accredited status.

Accreditation is for four years; OCCC CPD will submit annual reports attesting to continued compliance with those standards under which it was initially accredited.
