Campus Public Safety Officer Memorial Page

IACLEA believes it is important to honor and respect those campus public safety officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice by giving their lives in the line of duty. IACLEA has established this page to create a permanent commemoration of the service and sacrifice made by these heroic officers. IACLEA has honored some of these officers posthumously by conferring its Valor Award on them. In 2008, IACLEA created the Officer Memorial Award to honor campus public safety officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice.  These officers deserve honor and enduring respect.
