about us

 

Our Mission:  

To protect, educate, and help motivate America's youth and to work with educators, legislators, and law enforcement for the purpose of creating safer learning environments across America.

  •  To protect by helping to create school safety standards through testing, implementation, and legislation of 21st century leading practices for school safety on a state-by-state basis.

  •  To educate through public forums of discussion and direct communication with interested parties concerning safety leading practices and their implementation.
  • To motivate by sharing our paradigm changing public safety journey with students of all ages and through delivering student motivational/leadership workshops.

Our Vision:  

A reality where educational environments are as safe as possible from life-threat emergencies and where schools throughout America are moving towards incorporating school safety leading practices as the basis for future security based spending. A reality where first responders have the life-saving tools necessary to better protect and respond to the communities they serve. A reality where private companies, public safety professionals, first responders, legislators, and educators all act as one for the betterment of their community's safety. A reality where educators no longer have to fear the unknown with regards to safety but are fully prepared for all of life's regrettable possibilities that come from outside of the classroom.

Our Values:  

HONESTY, INTEGRITY, & TRUST are at the core of all we do.

OUR CAUSE

 

Created FOR ONE PURPOSE: THE Establishment OF SCHOOL SAFETY STANDARDS THROUGH testing, implementation, and legislation on a state-by-state basis.

In our nation today there is not a federal or statewide agreed upon plan of action and standardized list of school-safety leading practices that individual states currently use for the response to and mitigation of manmade and/or environmental emergencies to include active killer incidents. 

Our Kids Deserve IT sees now more than ever the need for establishing these standards and leading practices for school safety as well as interagency response tactics in order to provide answers to statewide deficiencies in school safety related issues.

  • Our Kids Deserve more than what states are currently providing.
  • Our Teachers Deserve more than what states are currently providing.
  • Our First Responders Deserve more than what states are currently providing.
  • Our Communities Deserve more than what states are currently providing.

our law enforcement & first responders

 

Without those willing to put their lives on the line for those who can’t or are unable to, freedom would not be protected.

Part of our mission at OKDI is to empower our Law Enforcement and First Responders with 21st century technology and abilities that make your lives safer and which create a more efficient response to and mitigation of life-threat emergencies. Our mission here at OKDI is as much for your safety and protection as it is for the children in our schools and the educators who teach those children.

We here at OKDI value your service and choice in life to protect communities all across America, and because of your choice we feel the best way we can serve those who serve is to provide valuable training opportunities whenever possible and in as many states as possible. You can help us in this endeavor by taking our survey located through the link below so we can have a better understanding of the particular needs in your community and how we can help.

We are raising funds for a variety of projects dedicated to those who serve our communities as well as designing our own trainings to provide valuable insight on leading practices related to school and public safety both for LEO’s and FR’s. We have nationally recognized partners across the U.S. and abroad and welcome your feedback for the purpose of putting on certified trainings for your “service first” men and women.

Thank you for all you do to protect and serve our communities yesterday, today and tomorrow!

Our Services

 
 

Law enforcement & first responder training

Currently the OKDI team is creating our own personally designed and CALEA certified 1-8hr training session that will go live and national at the start of the 2017 calendar year. The LEO/FR training will be comprised of understandings related to school/public safety leading practices, the response to and mitigation of life-threat emergencies in a school or public setting, the history of Active-Killer events and life threat emergencies both nationally and abroad, as well as a comprehensive understanding of the 21st century paradigm shift happening nationally in the world of public safety for both school settings and publicly occupied spaces.


School safety training for educators

The world we live in today poses ever more dangers for the men and women who have a calling to teach our youth than ever before. OKDI’s educator training was created to provide administrators, educators and educational staff the knowledge needed to prepare for and better protect their students in the event of an emergency. Along with preparedness tools and protocol advice we help educational staff create better emergency response plans and provide a detailed explanation as to what’s available for hardening classrooms, school buildings and overall industry leading advice for how to keep yourself and your students alive in the tragic event known as Active-Killer events.

Life-threat emergency school assessments

Our expertise is in working with educational environments and other publicly occupied spaces vulnerable to a life-threat emergency due to their inherent nature of being soft targets for violence. Our assessments are designed to identify potential risks in building structure and design, to identify ways schools can prepare for and better protect themselves against loss of life in an emergency, and for protection from lawsuits arising in the court of law due to negligence on the part of unknowing parties.

We focus on Active-Killer events as the basis for our assessments and build out further safety first ideas for protection from there. All subsequent safety upgrade recommendations are based upon our inclusive and evolving list of proposed and tested list of leading practices and protocols for school safety. Our main targets for assessments are areas where hardening your building and providing more intelligence to responding first responders can be taken into account.

 

student Leadership workshops and presentations

The three main tenants of OKDI’s mission for a better America are Education, Protection and Motivation. Our work is protection and education in the process but our passion is motivating the leaders of tomorrow so they can go out and be the world changers their capable of being.

school safety planning: protection

"The protection aspect of safety planning has more to do with insuring maximum physical protection of a school’s educators and students in the event of a life-threat emergency than it does with programming or preventative measures to reduce the risk of an incident arising. So, when we think of protection for a school, whether you’re an educator reading this, a local LEO or an on-sight SRO, we need to understand what minimum standards of physical protection a school should be accountable for providing to its inhabitants."

OUR EVENTS

 

a recap of our last event!

Our last Public/School Safety training summit was a major success. We had the distinct honor and pleasure of having many nationally recognized school safety experts as key presenters and guests throughout the 8 hour certified training for Law Enforcement and Educators. The event was co-sponsored by the Indiana Sheriffs' Association and was hosted at the Hamilton County Juvenile Services Center.

We are very thankful for the generous partners who helped make this event so special: The Indiana Sheriffs' AssociationA Simple ReminderArmoured One Tactical GroupLayered Solutions Inc.SikhsPAC, The Hamilton County Sheriff's Department, and everyone else who showed their support by volunteering their time and effort to pull off our Indiana Safety Summit.

Our story

 

OUR KIDS DESERVE IT was created by two individuals, Mason Wooldridge and Jessica Cirulli, who both had the opportunity to work with law enforcement, educators, legislators, private companies, and citizens from all over the great state of Indiana for the purpose of creating school safety standards to be adopted in the Hoosier State for public K-12 educational environments. Our nonprofit entity was founded shortly after our first major victory in March of 2016 when we were able to assist in the passage of a Senate Bill making Indiana the first state in America to move towards creating safety standards for their schools. The founders of OKDI have lofty goals in mind concerning the safety of American educational environments, namely creating school safety standards nationally through a state-by-state driven and layered approach, but nevertheless continue daily to make the world a safer place by providing "Safe School" assessments, educational and law enforcement trainings, as well as direct consulting work for public and private security companies, other nonprofits and school districts looking to be part of the amazing 21st century paradigm change in public safety. Currently OKDI is working to help states across America create their own version of School Safety Standards for the new construction of their schools. OKDI has just started their mission of providing expertise and guidance to states across the U.S. but have already received requests from over 20% of states throughout the U.S. desiring to help make their schools and communities safer for everyone involved in the educational safety process.
