Sights & Sounds from Campus Safety Conference East 2019

That’s a wrap on the 2019 Campus Safety Conferences! Here’s a peek at some of the things we saw and heard at the event this week.

Yesterday was the final day of the 2019 Campus Safety Conferences and what a summer it has been!

From Vegas to Dallas to Charlotte, hundreds of K-12 and higher ed campus safety and security professionals came together to receive time-critical education, training and networking experiences.

Campus Safety Conference East, held this week at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Charlotte-Concord Golf Resort & Spa in North Carolina, featured some unique topic sessions, including the neuroscience behind certain behaviors, transitioning from a security department to a police department, establishing the position of school security director, false alarms, traveling athletic teams and creating a student threat assessment team.

The two-and-a-half-day event included workshops, trainings, hot topic sessions, a sponsor showcase and keynotes from James Gagliano, retired Supervisory Special Agent with the FBI, and Molly Hudgens, a school counselor and Congressional Medal of Honor Citizens Honor recipient.

Journalists with NBC Charlotte, WBT Radio and Spectrum News covered the show, conducting interviews with CS editor-in-chief Robin Hattersley about the importance of the event.

We also announced the fourth-annual 2019 Campus Safety Best Electronic Systems Technologies (BEST) Award Winners at the show. You can see all of the winners here.

Before we start preparing for CSC 2020, we wanted to share some sights and sounds from CSC East. Check out our slideshow to catch a glimpse of what we saw and heard at the show.

We’d like to extend a sincere thank you to each and every attendee, speaker and sponsor who made this year’s shows possible. The dedication from each person to making campuses safer together was palpable, invigorating and inspirational.

We hope to see everyone again next year! Until then, stay safe and take care of each other.
