National Sheriffs' Association & Saint Leo University Announce National School Safety Recognition Initiative

Schools are recognized for implementing safety enhancements

Alexandria, VA - The National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) and Saint Leo University Center for Alternative Pathway Programs (CAPP) have partnered on the NSA School Safety Recognition Initiative (SSRI). The national initiative will recognize schools that have implemented recommended practices to secure schools and keep students, faculty, and staff safe.

SSRI is a voluntary self-assessment process designed for schools to gain a letter of recognition from national law enforcement school safety stakeholders for their efforts in implementing and maintaining school safety, security, and emergency preparedness.
