Blue In Schools School shield Initiative
We know that based upon nationwide statistics and school safety experts that having Police Officers and Sheriffs working in schools, around schools and working directly with students, parents, administrators and community members significantly improves school safety.
The purpose of the Blue In Schools Movement is to advocate for more support of police and sheriffs in School Resource Officer Programs (SRO); also, to educate school officials and the public of the many benefits of SRO programs.
The people of Blue In Schools do support, will defend, raise awareness and seek additional resources for SRO Programs nationwide.
The Blue In Schools professional experts will provide training, education and resources to law enforcement, school administrators, teachers, parents, students and community members in the areas of general school safety, violence prevention, working collaboratively, threat assessments, effective communication and critical incident recovery.
Blue In Schools will support all social media platforms, maintain and update a modern website with up to the minute school safety announcements and news, relevant historical information, school safety educational resources, a place for school safety experts and the community to connect and a library of best practices.
