Managing threatening situations and creating a safe school environment can present unique challenges. In order to meet these challenges, we must all stay current and well equipped. We invite you to participate in this seminar. This presentation will provide officers and education professionals with practical tools that will enhance their efforts to manage threatening situations in schools, and thus create safer school environments for our youth. With school safety in mind, we will also be providing an update on current gang trends in the metro area. Participants in this seminar will gain insight on the current structure, culture, activities, & driving forces behind the gangs operating in our area. With the ever growing use of social media, we will be presenting how you can stay current on gang related activities that may potentially pose a threat to people’s safety in your school and at school sponsored events.
