Time: 12:00 – 1:30 pm ET

Training campus professionals on various aspects of safety and violence prevention enables informed decision making when it counts. This webinar will air clips from our new free roll call video series created in partnership with Allied Universal (AUS) and give information on how to access and use them at your own institution. AUS will join us and share information on the importance of ensuring staff feel informed in their roles.

Attend this webinar if you are unsure where to start when it comes to training new campus safety professionals or those new to a safety/security role on a college campus or are looking for new techniques or tools for doing so. You will learn tips to lay the groundwork for your own personalized training programs and find answers to frequently asked questions about how to train your team.

Please submit any questions you have about training campus safety professionals to Laura Egan at legan@clerycenter.org by August 31st so we can provide answers during the session.

A recording of the webinar will be made available to all registrants.
