“Having the authoritative voice of law enforcement providing sound, accurate, and relevant information to my students in critical safety areas gives me tremendous peace of mind. Not only are the lessons in this program immediately relevant to the lives of our young adolescents, they are of the highest quality and interest level.”

- Sid R., middle school principal in Colorado
