Dawson on IACLEA board

Malcolm Dawson, Head of Security at the University of Leeds, has been elected to the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA) Board of Directors.

His term of office will start at the Installation Ceremony on June 28, in Vancouver in Canada as part of the four-day 2019 IACLEA Annual Conference.
Malcolm, pictured, has over 42 years police and security experience and has been at the University of Leeds for 27 years.

Malcolm said: “I am delighted to be joining the IACLEA Board of Directors in the role of International Regional Director. I will support the board fully and I am looking forward to working with other board members and all IACLEA officials and international members. I am truly humbled and honoured to be elected for this high profile role and can’t wait to get involved starting at conference in June. Collaboration and keeping people involved, listening, sharing information and communicating well with members, will be at the forefront of everything I do.”

Malcolm’s not a stranger to North America, as he was one of the first to take part in the AUCSO international exchange, as featured in the print issue of Professional Security magazine in September 2013. Malcolm visited Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta and returned the hospitality. As a further sign of how international campus security has become, the AUCSO exchange – as its annual conference heard last week in Aston – has extended from North America to Australia.

Malcolm takes the place as the international rep on the IACLEA board of Mark Sutton, until recently the head of security at Aston University in Birmingham and past chair of AUCSO.

Malcolm has been involved in the Association of University Chief Security Officers (AUCSO) for over 20 years, serving previously as the AUCSO regional chair for the north, and on the executive committee. Current AUCSO regional chairman for the north is Geoff Brown, security manager at York University.
