KEYNOTE: Conducting Threat Assessment Cases in a Virtual Environment

K-12 | Higher Ed

Many schools, colleges, and universities continue to operate virtually or with some combination of in-person and distance learning. Even without all students and employees on campus, threats can still occur, including threats unique to the virtual environment. This presentation will discuss how to conduct behavioral threat assessment investigations in a virtual or hybrid environment.

Marisa will include free resources on how to build a team in a virtual environment for schools and institutions of higher education that do not yet have a threat assessment team in place. The presentation will include discussions of multiple cases to illustrate how threat assessment teams can and should still operate in a virtual or hybrid environment.

A Nonsworn Community College Public Safety Department’s Lessons from This Summer’s Minneapolis Civil Unrest

Higher Ed

In June, the City of Minneapolis and Saint Paul saw significant civil unrest, looting and riots in reaction to the death of George Floyd. Again, on August 26, a second round of civil unrest and looting occurred after a homicide suspect took his own life along a major downtown corridor.

Both incidents created major safety concerns for the Minneapolis Community and Technical College campus and required a response from the non-sworn public safety department and college administration to keep the campus safe and secure.

During this presentation, we will take a look back and provide our lessons learned. The presentation will include our response from both incidents, including what we knew, the actions we took, our limitations, our concerns and the after-effects. This will be from the perspective of a non-sworn public safety department at a community and technical college located in the heart of downtown Minneapolis with no residential housing.

Mark DeRee, Associate Director of Public Safety, Minneapolis College

Can You Hear Me Now?: Why Your School P.A. System May Be the Most Important Component in a Successful Lockdown Plan

Jesus has tested hundreds of school P.A. systems across the country and to date, not one has passed his audibility and intelligibility test which measures how loud and how clear a P.A. system is across a campus setting. Therefore, how can a school expect its staff, students and visitors to know what to do during a lockdown if they can't clearly hear the message?

Jesus will give each attending participant specific details on why their P.A. system may be the most important component in their lockdown plan. He will also discuss how to test it and how to enhance its notification capabilities.

How to Develop an Effective Tabletop Exercise Program

K-12 | Higher Ed

Training the members of our staff is one of the most important steps we can take to ensure a safe and secure environment for our schools. Conducting training that engages our people and promotes the sharpening of skills and decision making is the most important kind of training we can do.

Tabletop exercises offer an opportunity for the attendees to experience the stress of an emergency without the danger. However, if you do not create a quality tabletop exercise, you will miss out on the value they offer.

This 30-minute program will cover:

  • How to structure the exercise
  • Who should participate
  • Understanding the value of this important tool
  • Evaluation and development of an improvement plan

KEYNOTE: How to Stay Motivated and Effective When You’re Overwhelmed

With all the current issues occurring in the country, the challenge for personnel involved in providing a safe environment on our campuses is becoming more difficult. This can lead to diminished desires to be active, which leads to failures within the established systems. This course is designed specifically for those involved in the safety and security of their school or college campus.

The presentation blends education, humor, a push to impact, and a ton of motivation for our attendees. The goal is to provide a program that encourages the group to be driven to impact and effect their communities even better than they have done before, especially during the times they are facing now.

Key Factors in Developing an Effective COVID Screening Program on College Campuses

How Teachers, Officers & the Helping Professions Can Respond to Their Own Trauma-Related Stress

K-12

Within the helping professions, there is an expectation placed on professionals to serve selflessly in order to create an indelible imprint in the community, with the next generation, or even the world at large. However, what happens with those professionals who are challenged with the task of serving in the midst of their own pain, burnout or trauma? Who is there to provide them with the empowering tools they need to be able to manage this phenomenon? How can they appropriately manage their own needs while servicing the needs of others?

This presentation will consider and provide necessary answers to the very crux of these issues. Here, the objective is to empower educators and others in helping professions while reducing the impact of their personal experiences with burnout and trauma.

Additionally, by encouraging self-awareness for themselves and the populations they serve, professionals will be able to develop pertinent skills that will enhance their effectiveness in their fields of service.
