Safe Havens personnel analysts are frequently sought out by media from around the world for information regarding school safety, security and emergency preparedness information relating to K12 public, private, charter, independent schools, colleges, universities and places of worship.

Our analysts have been interviewed by or featured on:

  • NPR
  • The Wall Street Journal

  • Larry King Live
  • 20/20
  • Good Morning America
  • ABC World News Tonight With Peter Jennings
