The 2023 Campus Safety Online Summit Is This Wednesday and Thursday. Register Now!
On Dec. 6 and 7, subject-matter experts will discuss timely safety and security topics such as protests, after-action reviews, and digital threat assessments.
Traveling for work around the holidays is far from ideal so we are bringing this year’s final Campus Safety Conference to you!
The Campus Safety Online Summit (CSOS), happening Dec. 6-7, brings together security, public safety, emergency management, administration, facilities, business, and IT professionals responsible for protecting K-12 and higher education campuses and districts.
More than 20 presenters, who are well-respected individuals in the space, will share insights and knowledge on various topics impacting campuses today, including protests, stalking, mental health, after-action reviews, digital threat assessments, and more. Among the presenters are an equity and student services director, an emergency management director, a campus police chief, a security consultant, a sociologist, and a lieutenant colonel, just to name a few.
We know one of the hardest parts of attending a conference is choosing between two sessions that run at the same time. By registering for CSOS, attendees will have six months of free access to all sessions, allowing them to watch sessions they may have missed at a time and pace that is convenient for them.
In addition to abundant sessions, CSOS will also have an Innovation Showcase where vendors will have the chance to briefly discuss their new products and answer questions from the audience. In 2021, $3.1 billion was spent on safety and security in K-12 schools alone. An additional $75 billion in ESSER funds have been awarded to schools and that money has to be spent by Sept. 2024. This showcase gives attendees an opportunity to ask solutions providers the tough questions to help them decide if it’s a partnership or investment that’s right for their campus’ needs.
Here’s a preview of some of the sessions at this year’s CSOS:
- Identifying and Responding to Stalking on College Campuses: This presentation explores stalking on college campuses by discussing the dynamics of stalking, common tactics used by perpetrators, stalking’s co-occurrence with other victimizations, and the importance of looking beyond one discrete incident to fully explore any related pattern of behavior.
- Integrating Mental Health and School Safety for Holistic Student Well-being: This session will provide an in-depth exploration of the Appoquinimink School District’s journey, offering participants valuable insights into the integration of mental health and school safety initiatives. This session will allow for group discussion and questions from participants to ensure practical and relevant information is shared.
- How to Identify, Assess and Respond to Online Threats: Digital Threat Assessment training provides participants with direct skills and tools that are effective and can be utilized immediately by your teams. You will learn how to identify digital leakage, check to see if the individual has access to the means to carry out a threat, and proactively reduce the potential of violence within your community.
- How Innovative School Safety & Policing Can Transform Campus Culture: Learn about the Four Pillars of School Safety and Policing as a transformative school and campus safety model. This multi-layered and holistic approach to safety and security is built on the four pillars of 1) safety and security, 2) student advocacy, 3) educational equity which focuses on student needs, and 4) behavioral health strategies that include the benefits of adding social workers to a police department.
- Leadership Lesson Learned from a Crisis Utilizing the After-Action Review Model: On April 10, 2017, the estranged husband of a special education teacher at North Park Elementary in San Bernardino, CA, entered the school and shot and killed his wife. One student was also killed and another was injured before the attacker took his own life. During this session, the presenters will share how the district, its police department, as well as its office of emergency management, managed the response to and recovery from this tragedy.
