Safe and Sound Schools Sponsors 3rd Annual Campus Safety Conference

Supporting both the east and west events extends organization’s reach and influence among school safety experts

NEWTOWN, Conn. – July 20, 2016 – Safe and Sound Schools announced its sponsorship of the 3rd Annual Campus Safety Conference, both East (July 25-26, 2016, in National Harbor, MD) and West (August 9-10 2016, in Long Beach, CA) events.

As an Association Sponsor, Safe and Sound Schools is further investing in its mission to empower communities to improve school safety. The Campus Safety Conference is a two-day intense conference for administrators and public safety officials, security and law enforcement executives from all over the country looking for solutions to campus safety, security, emergency management and technology challenges.

Attendees will hone their skills, improve their departments’ incident and response programs, and upgrade their school, university, or college protection profile. In addition, they will hear from the leading safety and security experts, learn strategies and tactics to reduce risk and improve response, learn first-hand about best practices and procedures for emergency response, and walk away ready to prepare and plan for emergency situations, protect students and faculty, and prevent a crisis on campus.

“To achieve our mission to empower schools to improve school safety, it is important to support not just local school communities, but the entire school safety ecosystem and events such as Campus Safety Conferences,” said Michele Gay, executive director and co-founder of Safe and Sound Schools. “Through our booths and involvement at both the East and West events, we hope to share our free tools and resources with more people responsible for the public safety and security of our nation’s schools, universities, and colleges so that together, we can rethink school safety.”

Safe and Sound Schools supporters can use the special discount code, SAS15, to receive a 15% discount on registration.
