This week, Kansas City Kansas Community College has the opportunity to showcase itself as campus law enforcement officers from throughout the region attend the 2017 International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators Mid-American Regional Conference.

Created in 1958 by 11 college and university security directors, the IACLEA is an organization that advances public safety for education institutions through educational resources, advocacy and professional development opportunities. Today, the organization serves more than 3,200 members representing 1,175 colleges in 10 countries. Members not only include campus law enforcement, but criminal justice faculty members; colleges, universities and other post-secondary institutions; municipal chiefs of police and companies who offer campus law enforcement services and products.

The Mid-America Regional Conference is held each year and serves as a way for campus law enforcement professionals to network and stay up-to-date on the current trends and developments in campus public safety. There are approximately 75 individuals attending this year’s conference as well as 15 vendors.

“It has been a lot of work for our department,” said KCKCC Campus Police Chief Greg Schneider about planning the regional conference. “There has been a lot of planning and scheduling of speakers, conference arrangements and set up, planning the conference banquet and managing the registration process.”

Topics covered at the regional conference include an update on conceal and carry on campus, crisis intervention training, Title IX and the Clery Act, among others. While KCKCC is hosting the conference, the training sessions are being held at the Great Wolf Lodge with a final banquet in the infield garage at the Kansas Speedway.

“This is an opportunity for great training and networking with campus law enforcement and security professionals from throughout 11 states in the Midwest,” Schneider said. “It is also a fantastic opportunity to showcase the college as well as Kansas City, Kan.”
