Summer School Safety Conference
Each summer SDASRO and the SD D.A.R.E.Officers Association (SDDOA) unite to provide an educational training conference for both law enforcement officers specialized in working with schools (SROs/D.A.R.E. Officers/Police Administrators) and school personnel (Educators/School Administrators). The training provides education and training in various topics. The goal is to continue building working relationships between law enforcement and educators and to provide the needed tools to keep our schools and students safe.
With the nation-wide rising concerns of school/student/staff safety, the conference gives fantastic information and resources to our LEO/educators/administrators who are always seeking to improve their schools, departments and professionalism in any way possible. In return, the educators/administrators who attend also deliver imperative feedback material of past, current, and future concerns within their schools (no school is the same and there is never one solution to fix every problem) to law enforcement which allows us to address those specific topics of interest and/or unease and together search for a resolution.
The conference is a 3 day training, scheduled in Pierre (SD) on the dates of June 19, 20, & 21, 2018. It is free for educators and the training at the conference will apply towards continuing-education contact hours for teaching recertification credits. Law enforcement will have a $50 fee to attend the conference which grants them a year of membership into SDASRO and SDDOA and helps to cover costs of presenters. Law enforcement officers also gain needed training hours for attending the conference. Refreshments will be provided for all attending the conference.
Below are links to the tentative schedule as well as to the registration form. For law enforcement, don't forget to also register with SD LET to reserve your room. Here is a link to their site, as well: http://atg.sd.gov/LawEnforcement/Training/calendar.aspx#
