I am pleased to invite you to submit a nomination from your school for the Alabama Safe Schools Initiative 2017 Awards of Excellence. These awards have previously provided the opportunity to identify and recognize excellence in school safety. My office will also be available to provide constructive feedback to the nominees on how they might improve their existing school safety plans.

These awards will be presented to a winning school from each of the eight state public school board districts and three private schools located geographically in North, Central, and South Alabama.  I will personally visit each school in the Spring of 2018 for an Award Presentation.  The deadline for receipt of all nominations is Friday, January 12, 2018.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact my Law Enforcement Coordinator, Chief Chris Carden, at (334) 242-7300 or Thank you again for your hard work and dedication to the safety of Alabama’s children. I look forward to receiving your school’s nomination application.
