Wake Forest University Police was re-accredited by the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement (IACLEA) at their annual conference and is being featured this month on IALCEA’s website (www.iaclea.org).
In 2008, the department was selected as one of five agencies that were “Pilot Program” agencies to seek accreditation by the IACLEA. The pilot agencies set the standard for the accreditation process. The Wake Forest University Police Department is the only pilot agency that completed the entire process for accreditation and is the first campus law enforcement agency to be accredited by the complete process.
The accreditation process is an on-going process with the department. The IACLEA accreditation process requires the agency to comply with the highest standards in four primary areas: policy and procedures, administration, operational procedures and support services. Proof of compliance with these standards is reviewed and maintained.
