Let's Talk about School Safety
Keith Flynn is Vermont’s Commissioner of Public Safety. The Commissioner directs four divisions within the Department of Public Safety: the Vermont State Police, the Division of Homeland Security & Emergency Management, the Division of Fire Safety, and the Division of Criminal Justice Services. Prior to becoming Commissioner of Public Safety, he served as the Orleans County State’s Attorney for 12 years. Commissioner Flynn is a proud lifetime resident of the Northeast Kingdom. He went to High School at North Country Union High School in Newport; received his BA from Castleton State College, and received his Juris Doctorate Degree from Thomas M. Cooley in Lansing, Michigan.
School safety in Vermont is everyone’s business. Parents, students, teachers, and emergency first responders are just a few of the groups that must work together to keep our children safe from harm. Let’s all do our part by developing positive working relationships with all those that have a role in providing a safe and enriching school environment for each and every child in Vermont.
I would like to recommend that Vermont’s first responder community continue to develop their strong working relationships with their local schools and take advantage of any collaborative training opportunities so we are prepared to respond when an emergency takes place.
