About Don Shomette

Don Shomette is a nationally recognized violence prevention expert with a concentration in human safety, threat assessments, student safety assessments, community policing, and school based officers.

Don Shomette is different than any other safety expert in the fact that he treats people holistically. Those who attend his trainings or benefit from his coaching and consulting grow both professionally and personally. It is his mission to inspire and motivate those that he helps to not only grow more proficient in their work but also happier in their lives by seeing safety as something so much more than cameras and locks. 

This belief makes Don Shomette the only inspirational and motivational speaker who also prevents violence!

His approach, Safe & Loved, has been so well received that he's the only violence prevention expert to get standing ovations!

Don Shomette has consulted for Mayors, superintendents, police chiefs, and key personnel in major cities with severe and chronic violence as well as wide-spread safety concerns.

Don is routinely interviewed by national news outlets concerning high-profile and extreme acts of targeted violence.

Don has had the privilege of assisting thousands of teachers, principals, superintendents, parents, school resource officers and other difference makers in dozens of states to help students, families, and communities to be safe and feel loved.

Don is proud to say that thousands are using his techniques and materials and he is grateful that he has been able to change lives, make days safer and better, and improved the culture inside families, schools, police departments, and businesses.

Don's efforts have directly helped to prevent several school attacks.

As a prior Marine, combat veteran, and prior School Resource Officer as well as a husband and father, Don learned a long time ago and has never wavered or strayed from the belief that people are not a problem to be solved but are the prize to be protected, nurtured, and loved. Technology is great, but people are better. People are the greatest asset, resource, and hope for a better tomorrow.

People are the prize!

Standing Ovations from Teachers!

Don Shomette is the ONLY violence prevention expert that gets standing ovations from teachers...after 3 hour safety talks!

“By far, the BEST presentation we’ve ever had in the district. It has been two months since the seminar and I’m still receiving feedback from teachers, administrators, paraprofessionals and clerical staff about WHEN (not if) I’m bringing Don back for another seminar! Don captured the audience from his first word spoken all the way through to the standing ovation!”
