  • Reduced the rate of incidents at athletic events due to improved crowd control, safety measures and lessons learned about crowd management from his relationship with the safety and security departments at nearby institutions of higher education.
  • Assisted with the distribution of thousands of face masks and other PPE to surrounding school districts.
