Safety Community of Practice (Safety-COP)

The Safety community of practice brings together individuals tasked with ensuring the safety of their community, whether in law enforcement, K-12, higher education, or workplace setting. This newly formed COP will provide the end-user with a valuable landing zone to come together and access resources, share ideas, learn best practices, and discuss new developments in their fields.

Safety-COP will provide users with valuable information on emerging trends, relevant news articles, whitepapers, specialized documents for your field of expertise, and an opportunity to connect with experts in each field.
