NECUSA connects you with training opportunities across the region.  This fall we brought you the opportunity to hear from experts in the field:

The Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) Department of Public Safety, in conjunction with NECUSA, hosted an “Active Shooter Red Flags” presentation given by Special Agent John Skillestad, FBI on October 10, 2019.

Site Protection Through Observational Techniques, a program that trains public safety personnel to improve their observational techniques by using a four-step ongoing screening process that includes increasing protective awareness, identifying preoperational behaviors, evaluating, and taking action. This training was hosted at Skidmore College on Oct 21, 2019

2019 NECUSA annual conference

Nearly 50 Campus Safety and Security professionals joined us at Saint Michael’s College in Colchester, VT, for the NECUSA annual conference. We heard presentations on trends in Clery Act compliance and enforcement, controversial speakers, fire safety and WMD. Attendees were provided opportunities to speak with vendors offering a wide variety of products and services to make our campuses safer. At our Annual Board Meeting, members heard committee reports on Board initiatives and we held elections resulting in the selection of new Officers (see page one). Following the conference we hosted a one-day Professional Development session resulting in 20 attendees being certified in Mental Health First Aid. All in all, we had a very productive conference.

WHAT IS NECUSA?

NECUSA has become an organization that is more than merely the sum of its parts. It has the culture of a large extended family in which members may go for long periods of time with no contact but can pick up the telephone at anytime and be received warmly by the person on the other end.

The primary focus of NECUSA is two-fold: to deliver cost-effective, high quality professional development opportunities within the northeast region and to create opportunities for networking with colleagues, both in person and electronically. Many of us have forged life long friendships that started over a discussion about parking or patrol work or a cold drink after a round of golf.
