STARTING OUR 28TH YEAR - THANKS TO YOUR SUPPORT!

             by Pat Holecek, Founder & CEO

 

SCHOOL VIOLENCE CONTINUES.    

We owe a vote of thanks to the hundreds of organizations who have helped schools learn what to do when the shooter walks through the door.   Tens of thousands of parents send their children to school these days with just a little more confidence in the administrators, teachers and local police.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could stop the violence before it occurred and never have to ask an adult to step into harm’s way to protect a child?

Law Advisory Group has taken a path that aims toward that seemingly impossible target.  We use the U.S. Secret Service Presidential Protection Detail as a model with their thought:  “You will never need to take a bullet for the President if you can detect and neutralize every one who might be the assassin.”

History tells us that the next shooter in school will probably be a student or ex-student.  How did we miss him?  Where did he fall through the cracks?

Our methods are based on  approaches that have worked in real situations.    Our inservice presentations and publications teach these successful methods.  Let us talk more with you about what we have learned,  the scope of our program and how we can bring it to your school or district.

 

FEDERAL GRANTS

MINIMIZING SUSPENSIONS AND EXPULSIONS 

Two of Law Advisory’s experts participated in the deliberations that began in 2010 and recently resulted in the Federal thrust in 2014 to limit the disparate impact of suspensions and expulsions on minority students.   A skilled grant writer is available to you to help you obtain some of the federal training funds that will be flowing to those who take the lead in implementing this new  No Zero Tolerance”  approach. 

Dr. Gary Avery, our Director of Operations,  announced the initiative to the  annual conference of the Texas School Resource Officers (TASRO)  and D.A.R.E. last year.  Our training program and consulting operation are up and running on this initiative.   You can call Dr. Avery directly at (888) 529-4771.  If he is teaching or otherwise engaged,  he will call back ASAP.

SAFE SCHOOL AUDITS

TRAIN YOUR TRAINERS

Our experienced  safety trainers can visit your district and train your personnel in two days to conduct a thorough safety review using our forms and instruc-tions.   We review your initial audits to make sure you aren't missing anything. 

After we leave we're always available for telephone or face-to-face consultation so that you can assure your community that your students and staff are being protected to the highest reasonable degree.

We even help your Public Information Officers get the word to the important people:  the parents who entrust their kids to you.

TRAINING AT

YOUR LOCATION

Available courses are:

1.  Our 2013 featured program "The Kid in the Back Row"  dealing with student suicide growing out of interpersonal troubles that teachers often fail to see,  remains available in 2014.    One of the instructors will  our associate Richard Harvell,  former School District Director of Safety and Security.  In a speech to school and police personnel in Chicago in 2009 he was asked,   "What student is most likely to cause a problem?"Rick's answer was,  "It's not the superstar and not the troublemaker.  You know both of them and are working with them.  Your real problem is the kid in the back row who has decided that life isn't worth living and that he might as well take someone out with him." 

 This program engages students at classroom level to teach them that they can talk about their problems because adults are actually interested and available to help.  It teaches the adults to ask the right questions.  Most importantly it shows how to collect, sort and categorize information and choose a proper course of action.

   

2.  The latest version of our classic program  "Drugs, Guns and Gangs in Schools"  is adapted to the law of each state where presented.   From its original version in 1990 it has been presented to more than 300,000 educators and law enforcement officers in 39 states.  

Fees fall within all Federal funding guidelines and will be quoted without obligation on a "not to exceed"  basis to any educational or law enforcement organization.  You may choose to combine with neighboring groups and share the cost.  Audience size is at your discretion and will not increase the fee.
