The Arkansas Safe Schools Association
is a statewide, non-profit organization consisting of School Resource Officers, School Safety Personnel, School Administrators and others dedicated protecting our children and helping our schools maintain a safe and orderly climate, thereby creating a positive learning environment.
Our goal is to provide consistent, up-to-date, affordable, quality, training that is available to all law enforcement agencies and school districts across the state. This training, along with a communication network of school safety professionals will make Arkansas Schools a safer place to learn.
The mission of the
Arkansas Safe Schools Association
is to make a positive difference in the lives of children and youth, primarily by providing leadership and skills training to our members who work in a school supported, one-to-one relationship with the student to assist them in achieving their highest potential as they grow to become competent, caring, and confident adults.
Violence on school campuses
was rising at an alarming rate. School shootings were on the news across the
country. In almost every case someone knew what was going to happen and was
either afraid to tell or wasn’t concerned enough to say anything. Sgt. Davies
began talking to students about being responsible and the S.H.O.T.
program evolved into what it is today. S.H.O.T. is a magical,
assembly style presentation that is a fast paced, fun, realistic look at
understanding yourself, making good choices, being responsible for your
decisions, and standing up for what is right.
