"Dynamics of Autism: The Law Enforcement Perspective."
For students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) learning to interact with first responders is critical. It is just as essential for School Resource Officers to have an understanding of Autism and to be prepared to respond effectively and safely to situations involving students on the spectrum.
OSROA is pleased to welcome Corporal Sherri Coronado as a keynote presenter for our 2019 School Safety Conference. Even those with experience working with kids on the spectrum will learn something as Sherri brings her experience as both a law enforcement officer and as the parent of an Autistic child.
"The Real World and Real Solutions to Adolescent Bullying"
Paul Coughlin founded "The Protectors" in 2005 out of personal experience and a unique understanding into a fundamental weakness of existing anti-bullying programs. Unlike traditional efforts that focus on reforming the bully, Paul focuses on the potential strength and rescuing capacity of bystanders. Paul dispels the myths about bullying and will help us to inspire children who bully to employ their power in life-affirming directions instead.
Paul is a Fox News analyst and contributor. He has authored eight books, including the resource, “Raising Bully-Proof Kids,” and his anti-bullying curriculum is used throughout the world. OSROA is excited to welcome Paul to our conference.
In August 2012, as a member of the Oak Creek (Wisconsin) Police Department, LT Murphy was the first responding officer to the Sikh Temple massacre - an active shooting event that left six dead and another three wounded. Brian was shot fifteen times during the gunfight and miraculously survived. He has been recognized on a state and national level for his heroic actions that day, including the Congressional Badge of Bravery and the Presidential Public Safety Medal of Valor.
Lt. Murphy (retired) will kick off the conference on Sunday night with a tactical debrief of that event. It is not to be missed.
Sergeant Rudy Perez
"Preventing the Tipping Point Utilizing Technology"
Sgt. Rudy Perez is a 17-year veteran of the Los Angeles School Police Department and the Second Vice President of the National School Resource Officers Association (NASRO). Rudy will describe how LASPD is using technology in a proactive way to prevent violent actions against the school environment and the community. This includes mental health cases and the "evolution of radicalization" that has become more prevalent in recent years. Sgt. Perez will teach SRO's and school staff how to monitor social media and phone applications, and how to use the information obtained as a threat assessment tool.
