LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Campus safety will be the topic at a five-day conference expected to draw hundreds of participants to Louisville.
The International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators' conference is billed as a premier event for campus public safety leaders.
It begins Friday and continues through Tuesday at the Louisville Downtown Marriott and the Kentucky International Convention Center.
Among the speakers will be law enforcement officials who were involved in two of the nation's most recent mass shooting tragedies in Aurora, Colo., and Newtown, Conn.
Workshop sessions will focus on planning and preparedness, technology, staff development and general campus law enforcement topics.
The University of Kentucky Police Department is hosting the event. It comes at a time when UK police are overseeing a $4.8 million expansion of campus security.
