About Vision Safety Solutions, Inc.

Multiple studies support that violence and trauma have very debilitating effects on children that may persist even through their adulthood. While everyone can try to prevent violence from occurring in our homes and families, community violence still affects and has damaging effects on everyone.

"PASSION IS WHAT LEAD US HERE"

Vision Safety Solutions Inc. has created a strategic and results-driven training program to assist police, community and school personnel to reduce the threat of community violence. Community groups, government officials, criminal justice professionals, working with school administrators, students, teachers and parents will create a much safer environment for everyone. Recognizing that each segment is important: each relying on the other for their own level of expertise but all too often, do not have the resources to provide all the training they would like, or funding to attend national conferences. Vision Safety Solutions Inc. was created to bring year-round, training to an office near you, thus creating "Training-on-demand," Vision Safety Solutions Inc. helps to empower kids, professionals, para-professionals and community members with information they need in pursuit of sound mental health, social emotional growth and safer environmental solutions, which allows everyone to work towards reducing community violence together.

During her tenure, Sergeant Jennifer Carpenter served as the Coordinator of 21st Century Policing, a policing model created by the Justice Department following an executive order issued by President Barack Obama. The mission was clear: The Task Force shall, consistent with applicable law, identify best practices and otherwise make recommendations to the President on how policing practices can promote effective crime reduction while building public trust.

Her expertise also includes engaging and coordinating with school administrators, school boards, the business community, parents and local government officials, to build and maintain a productive and successful school/police partnership which lead to the creation of a widely celebrated School Resource Officer Program.
