Keynote Speakers



As a longtime police officer, School Resource Officer and eventually Chief of Police for the Newtown Police Department in Connecticut, nothing could have prepared Chief Kehoe and his staff for the tragic day of December 14th, 2012.  Chief Kehoe was at the helm when 20 year old Adam Lanza entered Sandy Hook Elementary School and violently killed 20 children and 6 staff members at the school.  Prior to that, Lanza killed his mother at their home in Newtown and eventually killed himself following his rampage.

Chief Kehoe will speak about his agencies response and the aftermath left behind in the school, the small community, state and the entire nation.  Chief Kehoe will also speak on the need for mental health preparation in responding to such incidents.

Mr. Carlos Sanchez, Director / Administrator - Gang Response Team (Brentwood Schools, NY)

As seen on CNN, ABC News and many others, the Street Gang known as MS13 (Mara Salvatrucha) was recently named a terrorist organization in the United States.  This keynote session will feature a team of gang experts who are in Ground Zero for this brutally violent gang that is recruiting in so many American Schools.  These gang members fear no one, and joining the gang or not is simply not an option to other students who value life.  Step inside a world many don't have any knowledge about with this session.  The team will also conduct a longer breakout sessions for those attendees who want additional knowledge to how school administration and law enforcement can combat this threat to our children and schools.

  • 9:00am-3:00pm "How to Prepare & Respond to the Active Shooter"

    Active shooter events in the United States have required law enforcement agencies and educational facilities small and large to analyze their ability to effectively prepare and respond to these types of events. This powerful interactive presentation will discuss many facets of active shooter response across the spectrum of public safety, school staff, and school security. This presentation will also present preparation and response best practices from law enforcement and education across the nation. This course will provide an overview of the preparation and response responsibilities of law enforcement, fire services, EMS, and school administrative personnel.
  • 8:00am-5:00pm "AWR 148: Crisis Management for School-Based Incidents: Partnering Rural Law Enforcement and the Local School Systems"

    This Course is an 8-hour, DHS-approved course designed to educate rural law enforcement personnel as well as school administrators and staff on the elements that would allow for an effective response to school-based emergencies. Schools in small, rural, and remote areas across the country account for almost 23 percent of the total student population (more than 11 million students). Rural schools, law enforcement, and other emergency responders are often limited in resources, so it is imperative that all potentially affected parties collaborate on planning, preparing, communicating, responding, and recovering from a school-based incident.
