White Paper Released: Practitioners' Discussion of Implementing Clery/Title IX 

We are pleased to announce the release of our first white paper, Practitioners' Discussion of Implementing Clery/Title IX (PDF), written in partnership with the University of Wisconsin Police Department, the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA), and the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP). This paper is the result of a two-day summit at the University of Wisconsin in August 2014, where campus officials from around the US came together to discuss unresolved issues around Title IX and other related legislation including the Clery Act and the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). A comprehensive list of issues and concerns was developed and two case studies were reviewed, one from the University of Connecticut, the other from Amherst College.


Over the two days it became clear that it would be impossible to address all the issues and concerns that were identified. We did develop a list of initial "promising practices" and it is included in this initial paper. A second summit is planned in the next few months and a final paper with more definitive solutions is planned for release after the second summit concludes. We realize, and it is noted in the paper, that not all "promising practices" will work for each institution, but we believe that there are helpful thoughts for all.


We encourage you to download and share this resource and always look forward to your feedback.

Free Access to the IACP Law Enforcement Policy Center for IACP Members

Have you heard the news? Beginning in January 2015, International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) members will receive free and complete access to the
IACP Law Enforcement Policy Center. This benefit will allow members to download, free of charge, every Model Policy and corresponding Discussion Paper on over 100 different topics including, but not limited to: Use of Force, Active Shooter, Body-Worn Cameras, Electronic Control Weapons, Investigation of Employee Misconduct, Officer-Involved Shootings, Serious Uses of Force, Body Armor, and Eyewitness Identification.


The IACP established the National Law Enforcement Policy Center in 1987 to assist law enforcement agencies with developing and refining law enforcement policy. Each model incorporates the research findings, input of leading subject experts and professional judgment of advisory board members.
