AACC Public Safety and Police Department Reaccredited

IACLEA Accreditation Indicates Department Uses Highest Professional Practices

Anne Arundel Community College’s Department of Public Safety and Police was reaccredited this fall by the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA).

The department was the first community college public safety agency in the nation to receive accreditation from the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators on Sept. 30, 2008, and this announcement marks its second reaccreditation.

The four-year accreditation is recognition of the department’s excellence and its use of “the highest professional practices” in campus law enforcement. The department also had to demonstrate that it was in full compliance with more than 200 applicable standards to become reaccredited.

Chief Gary Lyle, director of the department, said the reaccreditation demonstrates that the AACC department is using proper, up-to-date procedures. “This tells the college community and other professional law enforcement and public safety agencies that they can be assured that we meet internationally recognized standards.”

The IACLEA represents campus public safety leaders at more than 1,000 institutions of higher education. The organization was formed more than 30 years ago to represent college and university law enforcement, public safety and security departments.
