The NYU Department of Public Safety is seeking Campus Security Accreditation, and has been in self-assessment since January 2018, through the Commission on the Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA)*. CALEA administers a rigorous accreditation process whereby campus security agencies must adhere to over 290 standards and state-of-the-art practices. The NYU Department of Public Safety is the largest university campus security department to seek this prestigious recognition and is actively preparing for its August 2019 site-based assessment. Check out the video below to learn more about the accreditation program at NYU's Department of Public Safety and contact us to let us know what you think!
*CALEA: The credentialing authority created through the joint efforts of the following four law enforcement major executive associations: International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP); National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE); National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA); and the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF). The purpose of CALEA’s Accreditation Programs is to improve the delivery of public safety services, primarily by: maintaining a body of standards, developed by public safety practitioners, covering a wide range of up-to-date public safety initiatives; establishing and administering an accreditation process; and recognizing professional excellence.
