Joint Accreditation


Public safety has received joint accreditation from two accrediting agencies. After conducting an inspection, assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) awarded the Advanced Law Enforcement Accreditation to the College of Charleston Department of Public Safety.

The department also was accredited by the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators Accreditation Commission (IACLEA) and was formally recognized at the awards ceremony held during the Opening General Session of the IACLEA Annual Conference.
