About us

Don Shomette is a nationally recognized violence prevention expert who helps schools and police departments to prevent and survive school attacks.

Our approach

There are lots of tools and technology available to help prevent violence, but nothing is better than a trained, committed, and vigilant person.


The single greatest asset any school, police department, business, or community has to save lives, limit physical harm, and reduce emotional suffering is a...principal, police officer, teacher, counselor, social worker, student, parent...a person

People are the Prize and we prepare them to be successful!

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!”
