Who We Are
The HBCU-LEEA, Inc. is a nonprofit 501c3 national organization of police chiefs, executives and security directors that advance campus public safety for its students attending the 101 HBCU educational institutions nationally. Most of the HBCU campus police departments are certified police agencies with sworn police officers. These officers are certified through their respective states as are other local police departments. In 1999, the concept of the HBCU-LEEA was born when a group of concerned campus police chiefs and campus public safety directors reached consensus on the need to organize for the purposes of information-sharing and collectively addressing mutual challenges.
