Keeping Kids Safe Symposium

Keeping Kids Safe Symposium

Presented by BCIU

Keeping Kids Safe symposiums have been coordinated by the Berks County Intermediate Unit since 2010. BCIU brings in experts on school safety and security to Berks County. These symposiums are an opportunity for school administrators, counselors, psychologist, nurses, SAP, emergency response personnel, and community partners  to hear from the leaders in the field.

Our last Keeping Kids Safe Symposium was held on October 19, 2021. Our keynote speaker was Dr. Lina Alathari. Dr. Alathari is the Chief of the U.S. Secret Service National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC), where she oversees the center’s targeted violence behavioral research program. The findings from these projects have identified behaviors, motives, and triggers of individuals who engage in various forms of violence, including school and workplace violence.
