Researching Your Department's History
Fasl, Patrick J.
Campus Law Enforcement Journal, v38 n2 p26-28 Mar-Apr 2008
In the spirit of the fiftieth anniversary of IACLEA, the author proposes that every campus law enforcement agency conduct an extensive examination for the purpose of documenting their history. After spending many hours online the author discovered that only a few departments have taken time to write their history and no doubt there are a multitude of reasons for not having done so. Some departments may not want to remember their past; others may never have thought it necessary, and still other departments may not know where to begin. In this article, the author offers tips on where to begin and the guiding questions to be answered in creating the history of one's department.
