10X SRO is a 2 day, advanced leadership training exclusively for SRO's and other school based police officers that gives you the skills, materials, and techniques to maximize your personal and professional impact by 10 times!

There's no other event like this for SRO's--anywhere!


How does 10X SRO help you?


By learning a simple, easy to implement, and proven strategy as old as law enforcement, and then perfecting that strategy into a skill through practical application on approximately one hundred  scenarios, you'll gain the ability as well as the confidence to walk into any situation at anytime and tell anyone exactly how to immediately make a school safer!


5-10-15 TECHNIQUE:

Violence in schools can be boiled down to simply an issue of right and wrong, good and bad. If our goal is to end violence then we must help, guide, and raise students to understand right from wrong and choose to do good instead of bad. The 5-10-15 technique, together with approximately 75 'course corrections' and 20 practical applications, gives you the ability to easily and effectively correct student behaviors without becoming overwhelmed or bogged down.


The 5-10-15 technique was created and successfully utilized in the military to build and reinforce ethically strong personnel. Therefore, it is perfect for police officers who are looking for a character education method that is ‘real world’ and outcome focused.



If you want to change your school then you must change your school day. We'll guide you through a normal school day and show you exactly how great schools blend violence prevention techniques into activity from morning arrival to dismissal.



People do not do what they should but what they can. The E-SAT method will show you how to blend violence prevention techniques into what teachers can already do well--engage students.


We've tried for decades to get teachers to play a more active role and we've received very little return because we've wrongly tried to make teachers into something they can't or don't want to be. With the E-SAT method you'll learn how to work in harmony with the inherent desires of a teacher by showing them how to blend the 3 strategies proven to prevent a school attack into every positive student engagement. We know teachers can engage with students. Let's build on that foundation and show them how to mesh school safety together with engagement!



Every school attacker has lacked the same 7 Inner Strengths of 1) Truth 2) Balance 3) Hope 4) Growth 5) Happiness 6) Purpose and 7) Compassion.


With 10X SRO, you'll be able to assess, track, and apply behavioral modification techniques as well as lead your teachers to enhance the 7 Inner Strengths in their students.


Tracking trajectories is critical. We'll show you how to read student behaviors to determine which category a student is in and whether they appear to be Unsafe, Safe, Satisfactory, or Strong.
