School and Campus Safety Training Coordinator
Virginia Center for School Safety, Department of Criminal Justice Services
Manager, Virginia Center for School Safety
Department of Criminal Justice Services
The Virginia Center for School Safety has a long standing commitment to supporting schools in their efforts to enhance safety. As a result of legislation resulting from the Governor’s School and Campus Safety Taskforce and 2013 Virginia General Assembly Virginia public school leaders found themselves with new requirements and mandates and little time and local resources to meet those requirements. The Center, in partnership with other state agencies continue to provide free trainings, resources, and grant opportunities in support of school safety. An overview of those trainings and resources will be provided. Participants will receive materials and information on K-12 and higher threat assessment, school safety inspection checklists, lockdown drills, critical incident response and emergency planning as well as free materials related to these and other topics.
