Frank DeAngelis, Former Principal

When Columbine happened, social media was not as prominent as it is right now. After sitting in and listening to Theresa Campbell (CEO, Safer Schools Together) and her group on several occasions, I would strongly encourage anyone that gets an opportunity to use Safer Schools Together, take advantage of that. Because what Theresa is doing each and every day, is preparing communities from events, such as Columbine, from happening.

Safe Schools for Alex

Max Schachter, Founder & CEO

I truly believe the Digital Threat Assessment training SST provides law enforcement and schools will prevent acts of targeted violence, and ultimately save lives.

John Callery, Special Agent in Charge

Having seen Theresa Campbell, CEO of Safer Schools Together, work on school threats and tragedies firsthand, I can tell you she is the ultimate professional in law enforcement and school policy advisement. She is a world renowned subject matter expert in violence prevention and intervention who provides expert training and consultation to thwart tragic incidents. Theresa takes her work personally, she invests in her workforce and in each entity seeking her advice with all of her knowledge and her vast experience. She is the equivalent of a special force operator in the school safety realm. I am proud to call her a close friend and colleague in professional law enforcement.

Carol Todd, Founder

After the loss of my daughter, Amanda Todd in 2012, I became an advocate to increase the awareness of bullying, cyberbullying, internet safety, exploitation and mental health. I have been connected to Safer Schools Together (SST) over the course of the past number of years and commend SST for their dedication to ensuring the safety and well-being of children and youth across North America. 

Keeping informed is important and SST stays up-to-date with the critical information needed to better protect ourselves with the technology we are using in our daily lives.  

I have been fortunate to attend a variety of presentations and training sessions provided by SST.  These interactive presentations have provided critical information, as well as important resources that effectively informs and teaches those attending how to effectively keep themselves and others safe from violence.    

I look forward to a continued relationship with SST so that we can ensure online safety for all. 

Richard Primrose, Assistant Director of Student Life

As an administrator at an independent school, I believe it is incredibly important that we educate our kids on how to navigate the online world. With so many of our students communicating through social media, we want to give our kids the tools necessary to make safe choices, and to avoid putting themselves in compromising situations. Nick Chernoff’s presentation struck the perfect tone with our students, balancing a hopeful, student-centered approach, with the necessary messages surrounding the uglier sides of social media, such as sextortion and the risks of sharing inappropriate content. This presentation helped contribute to a positive school culture and was well received by students, faculty, and parents alike. I would highly recommend this presentation for any school.

“As a Community and School Resource Officer, I was in awe of the information this training presented. Social media is not an option, it is the way our students and youth communicate on a daily basis. I simply wasn’t speaking their language, and my relationships were not as productive because of it. Within two weeks of taking the Digital Threat Assessment training from Safer Schools Together, four students walked into the office at one of my schools to report that their friend was contemplating suicide. During the initial interview with them, I was able to utilize Snapchat’s new SnapMap feature to quickly locate the student on a map in real time. Previous to the training, I didn’t know that there was such a tool that would allow us this opportunity. I believe that a student is alive right now due to the courage of the four students and the quick use of available open source social media. This is a MUST have training for school district and any law enforcement who deal with youth. This training WILL save lives!!”

Frank Molleda, Chief of Security

Lynwood Unified School District has been working with Safer Schools Together (SST) for three years. The monthly worrisome reports we received from SST are a valuable and essential tool in keeping our Lynwood District community safe. I am continually impressed with their level of professional support and outstanding customer services. If you are in charge of security, safety, and/or law enforcement for your school campus community, SST is a valuable partner to have on your side.

Lisa Southern

Theresa Campbell is a wonderful resource and asset to School Districts. Her work is thorough, and her skills at connecting with students, staff and parents to determine the issues and identify solutions to problem behaviours are remarkable. Theresa ensures that those involved in the process feel heard, respected and confident that the outcome will be fair. I would recommend Theresa without hesitation.

Police Officer

By far one of the best, if not the best, presentations I have attended. This course has made me feel more confident in identifying early warning signs and opened me up to realizing I must share info with other agencies.

Marleen Wong, Ph.D.

These are credible professionals who provide the most current, effective training and resources to address the early indicators of an individual on the pathway to engage in violence. Their training provides schools and communities with the tools necessary to conduct effective Violence Threat Risk Assessments, manage traumatic events, implement strategies to prevent bullying and ensure safe and caring schools.

Dr. Leena K. Augimeri

There is no doubt that Theresa Campbell has the expertise, knowledge and passion to help schools and communities develop and implement effective anti‐bullying initiatives in their schools to create a safer and caring school climate.
