  Annotation: This report presents the themes and recommendations of the National Summit on Campus Public Safety held November 29-December 1, 2004, in Baltimore, MD.
Abstract: The summit planning committee and the U.S. Justice Department's Office of Community Oriented Policing Services selected the summit delegates for their expertise, national stature, and commitment to excellence in campus safety. The delegates included representatives from campus police and security agencies, major professional associations, college and university administrations, student organizations, and Federal agencies. Three points of focus emerged during the summit. One point was overcoming the fragmentation that inhibits innovation, partnerships, and professionalism in the field of campus public safety. A second point was the creation of a national agenda on campus public safety to guide relevant future endeavors of government agencies, nonprofit organizations, business and industry, and professional associations. The third point was the establishment of a national center for campus safety to support information-sharing, policy development, model practices, operations, and research. Twenty-five summit recommendations were grouped into 3 categories: promote collaboration; operate a safe campus; and strengthen operations and administrative functions. Among the recommendations for promoting collaboration are to create a national agenda on campus safety, establish a national center for campus safety, and initiate a National Advisory Panel on Campus Safety. Recommendations pertinent to the operation of a safe campus are the adoption and implementation of the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators Threat Assessment Instrument, as well as an all-hazards approach to preventing and managing crises on each campus. Recommendations for strengthening operations and administrative functions include the creation of national standards on minimum qualifications for campus police and security personnel, along with the adoption of common policies, procedures, and incident response strategies for use across multiple units and campuses in a region.
