The Skokie Chamber of Commerce's Women in Business program is back in the ALL NEW Business Center at the Skokie Public Library!
Join us for networking, lunch and a Personal, Workplace & Vehicle Safety presentation by Valerie Davis and Lauren Bonner of Comprehensive Security Consulting, LLC.
Valerie Davis is a 19-year veteran police officer. In the fall of 2021, she will assume the responsibilities of School Resource Officer at her department. Valerie is an instructor at her department and provides instruction in Tactical Medicine, Active Assailant training, and Firearms. She is a certified ALERRT CRASE (Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events) and Stop The Bleed instructor.
Effective safety, especially in the public sphere, cannot be implemented with a “one and done” approach. Valerie believes in instituting a comprehensive process where everyone receives education and training to contribute and fit into the safety and security matrix. She is determined to focus on the importance of layering the smallest measures of best practices, attention to the norm, and situational awareness of the individual to build a solid foundation that supports a safe environment.
Lauren Bonner brings over a decade of experience as a high school administrator in both the public and private setting. She serves as co-chair of the Crisis Response Network of the North Shore and is one of the founding members of the North Shore Coalition for Drug-Free Communities and the Adolescent Health Summit, a conference for professionals who work with youth that focuses on the most emergent and pressing topics each year. Dedicated to increasing school safety and emergency preparedness, Ms. Bonner works collaboratively with all stakeholders to improve outcomes and prepare for all scenarios. At the heart of her work is the belief that each of us plays a role in the safety of our workplaces.
