We all know that safety is any school’s first and most important responsibility. Michael Dorn serves as the Executive Director of Safe Havens International Inc., a global non-profit school safety center whose analysts have worked in more than two dozen countries. During his 36-year career, Michael served as a campus police officer, corporal, sergeant, lieutenant and school district police chief. He was then appointed as the School Safety Specialist for the State of Georgia and later as the Lead Program Manager of the Terrorism Division of the Georgia Office of Homeland Security. Michael was selected as the top school safety expert by Jane’s, the British intelligence, defense and security publisher after an international search. Michael has also provided post-incident assistance to law firms, school systems, state agencies and insurance carriers for thirteen active shooter and targeted school shooting incidents in K12 schools in the United States and Canada.
“I was truly impressed by Michael Dorn’s presentations on school violence, bullying, school emergency preparedness and schools and terrorism given at the University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Vietnam National University. The content was very relevant and useful as these topics are new here in Vietnam. Thank you ever so much for sharing with us such an excellent presentation.”
