Developing Campus Public Safety Mobile Apps for Accessibility, Sustainability, & Community Outreach
Webinar Audio Recording and Presentation Materials

Public safety organizations, especially within a university/college environment, are always under pressure to improve responsiveness and service to the public. It is a very sensitive area in which mobile solutions (i.e., mobile apps) and social media continue to expand rapidly in both technology and community use. Current public safety mobile apps tend to focus on providing such functions as data collection/crime statistics, remote reporting of crimes, emergency notifications, immediate 911 telecommunication, and GPS tracking. Although many of these mobile solutions greatly assist and improve upon the providing of public safety services, much more is being missed. This webinar will provide information about the importance of and logistics in developing a unique mobile app to strengthen a campus public safety organization’s image, services, and institutional/departmental initiatives.

Webinar Audio Recording and Presentation Materials

IACLEA is pleased to offer the Behavior/Threat Assessment Team Webinar audio recording and presentation materials to those who were not able to participate in May.

Preventing violence at our institutions has become a top priority for public safety officials.

Through a pro-active, collaborative, organized, and objective approach, the Threat Assessment Team is able to identify, assess, intervene, and manage disruptive or threatening situations to community members. The threat assessment process encourages early intervention to help manage those individuals whose behaviors potentially impede their own or others' ability to function successfully and safely.

Upcoming Changes to Campus Safety Rules
Co-sponsored by the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) and IACLEA
July 7, 2009, 1:30 p.m. ET (100 minutes)
Is your institution prepared to make a “good faith” effort to comply with new campus safety mandates enacted as part of the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA)? Colleges and universities are now required by law to notify their community immediately of confirmed emergencies on their campuses. Additional categories have been added to hate crime reporting under the Clery Act. And campuses with residential facilities for students need to develop policies and practices to respond to missing student reports, and track fires and report statistics.

Join our expert presenters, all of whom served on the negotiated rulemaking team that helped the Department of Education draft proposed regulations due to be released later in July, to discuss what your institution needs to do. Tools to help you comply will also be shared.
