Becki Achey, Associate Director of Public Safety, and Tomas Chwatek, Public Safety Operations Supervisor, attended a three day intensive domestic violence, dating violence and stalking training at the University of Massachusetts, Boston on August 1-3, 2016. This 3-day intensive training class is designed for campus police/public safety administrators and investigators (sworn, non-sworn, and Title IX/Civil Rights investigators) who have responsibility for conducting and overseeing dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking investigations on their college campuses. Officers learned how to fully investigate these additional “Clery Crimes” as defined by the Department of Education in the 2013 Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act in higher education from start to finish with special emphasis on complying with the new VAWA regulations which amended the Clery Act and Title IX regulatory guidance.
The Department of Public Safety hosted our 5th Annual R.A.D. Instructor Certification class on March 14-16, 2016. We had 13 police officers from all over the country attend the 2-day course from Kutztown University, MAEDER, 11 SSPTS/S3T, University of North Carolina Greensville, Kenova Police Department (West Virginia), Franklin & Marshal Police, Wetzel County Sheriff’s Office, West Virginia United States Air Force-Andrews Air Force Base- 11 Security Support Squadron and Penn State Berks Police Department. Officers participated in 30 hours of training to become R.A.D. Instructors.
Public Safety will be holding R.A.D. class sign-ups for the month of April 2016. Visit http://www.albright.edu/resources/security/sec-rad.html to view more information about the class and register!
