Virginia Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (VACLEA)
The VACLEA Conference, hosted by Chief Mike Gibson of the University of Virginia, was held earlier this Summer in Virginia Beach. PHR was represented there highlighting our Police Assistance Program and our work with employment testing, training and consultation with public safety agencies throughout the state. VACLEA is the group responsible for safeguarding the wellbeing of college and university students throughout the Commonwealth. The campus environment presents its own unique set of challenges in balancing security and order with the need to explore and discover that is the hallmark of the college population. This means tackling everything from the day-to-day crime found in any environment, to the festivity of college football game day, to the dangers of student drug abuse.
