Col. Harry Corbitt

Considering the magnitude of violence in many of the cities of America, difficult challenges confront law enforcement agencies, public school districts and community residents. Col. Harry Corbitt, a veteran of the NYS Police, will describe the breadth of approaches used in Albany, NY to prevent school violence. However, school violence goes beyond the extreme physical assaults and also includes the day to day bullying and disrespect that can lead to violent outbursts or suicide. Ira Baumgarten, and NCBI facilitator, will explain how their program, Building a Caring School Environment, helps to recreate a safer school for students and teachers alike.
