UTSA is set to host the 2020-2021 Texas Association of College and University Police Administrators (TACUPA) Learning Symposium in the Durango Building on the Downtown Campus, November 4–5.

“It is an honor to host the TACUPA Learning Symposium,” said Interim Chief of Police Stephanie Schoenborn. “We welcome attendees to UTSA and San Antonio, and look forward to hearing from top experts on Clery compliance, as well as learning best practices to recruit and retain top talent.”

TACUPA is partnering with CriticalArc to provide free expert-led training on best practices for maintaining compliance with the Clery Act. Attendees will also learn important techniques for overcoming recruiting, retention and turnover challenges. Participants will earn 16 hours of Texas Commission on Law Enforcement credit.

Dolores Stafford and Dr. Michael DeBowes will kick off the symposium by providing updates and best practices on complying with the Clery Act.
