Accreditation Assessment Team Invites Public Comment of ACD Police Department
June 14, 2023
A team of assessors from the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA) will arrive on July 15th, 2023, to examine all aspects of the Alamo Colleges District Police Department’s policy and procedures, management, operation, and support services and are inviting the public to provide comments on Monday, July 17.
Verification by the team that the Alamo Colleges District Police Department meets IACLEA’s state-of-the-art standards is part of a voluntary process to gain accreditation – a highly prized recognition of campus public safety professional excellence.
The Alamo Colleges District members, agency employees, and the public are invited to offer comments by calling (210) 486-1810 on Monday, July 17th, 2023, between the hours of 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. (CST). Comments will be taken by the Assessment Team.
Telephone comments must address the department’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 the Alamo Colleges District Police Department’s ability to comply with the standards for accreditation may send them to:
P.O. Box 825345,
Philadelphia, PA 19182.
The Alamo Colleges District Police Department has to comply with 227 standards, in order to achieve accredited status.
“With the accomplishment of this recognition, the Alamo Colleges District Police Department will have achieved its second accreditation award toward its vision statement of being the best in the nation at providing campus law enforcement and safety services,” said Alamo Colleges District Police Chief Derek Fuller.
The Accreditation Manager for the Alamo Colleges Police Department is Captain Edward Saucedo. 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 where compliance can be witnessed. The Assessors are Tamara McCollough, Director of Public Safety; Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Terre Haute, IN. Team Leader; and Richard J. White Public Safety Director, Portage Department of Public Safety, Portage Michigan.
Once the Assessors complete their review of the department, they will report back to IACLEA, which will then decide if the department is to be granted accredited status.
Accreditation is valid for four years, during which the department must submit annual reports attesting to continued compliance with those standards under which it was initially accredited.
