Student Safety and Security

Safety is among the top priorities at Chicago Public Schools, and the Office of Safety and Security has implemented a comprehensive system that includes trained staff, protocols, programs, and policies to keep students and staff safe before, during, and after school.

CPS Security Training

CPS security officers are trained to support school communities using best practices that are designed to work in school communities in such a way that is supportive and proactive to students and staff. Security officers are trained to recognize and intervene in situations prior to them becoming serious incidents by using de-escalation strategies. Security officers must complete the following modules:

Safety Care Training
