Security provider Allied Universal announced a partnership with the Clery Center, a national, non-profit training and policy organization dedicated to creating safer campus communities to develop video-based training tools for line campus public safety personnel.
The roll-call training program for campus public safety and security professionals is scheduled to be released during National Campus Safety Awareness Month in September.
“The partnership with Allied Universal will provide a meaningful training program that covers the key modern campus public safety issues for the type of personnel that have the most interaction with students each day,” said Clery Center Executive Director Alison Kiss. “We look forward to working with Allied Universal on this vital initiative that will keep the issues of campus safety at the forefront.”
“We are thrilled to have been selected to lead the way in a collaboration to further safety initiatives for students on campuses everywhere, this advances our long-established commitment to training specific to campus communities,” said Jonathan Kassa, Director of Higher Education at Allied Universal.
The announcement said, “The training program, building on Allied Universal’s Higher Education Academy, will consist of short online video modules featuring adult learning principles and quizzes that assess mastery of the subject matter. In addition, it will encompass supporting reference materials and on-the-job tools along with in-person reinforcement guidance.”
Module topics will include specifics about the Jeanne Clery Act and campus security authorities; sexual violence and higher education law; trauma informed response; campus culture; communicating with students and stakeholders; and other pertinent campus related topics.
