IACP Launches School Safety Online Trainings

Recent nationwide school crises have emphasized the importance of critical incident assessment, preparedness, and response efforts.

IACP, in collaboration with the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice, is pleased to announce the launch of four school safety online trainings. This introductory level series includes instruction on: “Assessing School Safety,” “Forming Your Safe School Planning Team,” “Preparing for a School Crisis,” and “Responding to a School Crisis.” The trainings are designed to provide guidance for creating or enhancing school safety and crisis response plans and targeted to law enforcement, school officials, and allied stakeholders tasked with ensuring school safety.

The self-paced courses can be taken separately or combined as an entire training series. These online trainings are based upon IACP/OJJDP’s highly successful classroom training, Partnerships for Safe Schools, which has been delivered 39 times in the last 13 years to over 1,700 law enforcement and school personnel representing 32 states, the District of Columbia, and the Bahamas.
